5./LN-Rgt.31 in Anapa

Hello!

27.Jun.43 76 men of 5./LN-Rgt.31 arrived in Anapa by sea.
The great Kuban air battles were over by then and Kuban bridgehead turned into backyards.
What could be the reasons for such redeployment? Need to increase the number of observation posts due to lack of sufficient forces in the air?

What equipment did this (or typical) company have? Maybe radar(s)?

Best regards,
Andrey

5./LN-Rgt.31 was a ground unit responsible for long distance cable positioning (Feldfernkabelbau).

Thank you very much!

The appetite comes with eating. What were the functions of other LN-Rgt.31 units?

Kind regards,
Andrey

Thank you!

Is this the only available source for Lw signal units?

Re: 5./LN-Rgt.31 in Anapa

Good Morning Andrey,

This 2-volume work is the only comprehensive source on the Luftnachrichtentruppe. It was published long ago and in very limited quantities so you may only find it in a few research libraries today.

Hoffmann, Karl Otto, Ln: Die Geschichte der Luftnachrichtentruppe, 3 Bde (Neckargemünd, 1965-73). Band II/Teil 1: Der Flugmelde- und Jägerleitdienst 1939 – 1945, c. 762 pages. Band II/Teil 2: Drahtnachrichtenverbindungen Richtfunkverbindungen 1939 – 1945, c. 694 pages.

Other that this, there are some postwar studies of the Ln written by German Ln. officers and Allied officers for A.I.12 (Post Hostilities)/Air Ministry, London. These were in mimeograph format and never published, and today can be found in both the British and U.S. national archives.

There are also several websites that cover or deal with the Ln., including:
http://www.gyges.dk/ which is excellent and the product of fellow TOCH member SES (a retired Danish Air Force fighter pilot). You can search on the internet for the others.

Larry
