Exclamation XII. Fl.-Korps/I. Jagdkorps?

According to "Dienststellen, Kommandobehörden und Truppenteile der Luftwaffe" Band 1 von Christian Zweng, XII. Fl.-Korps was renamed I. Jagdkorps on the 14. of septemmber 1943, but in the KTB it still calls itself XII, as late as 13. october 1943 and on the 24. october 1943 then I. Jagdkorps!! Can anyone supply evidence to the date of the renaming?? I'm looking for sources other than books!!!!

Re: XII. Fl.-Korps/I. Jagdkorps?

Hi Jørn,
I have seen references to XII Flg.Korps as late as 27 OCT 1943. I have the same problem with II JK. Officially it was disbanded 26 JAN 1945, but I have documents issued by the Korps way into FEB 1945.

Hi Rob.

Thak's a lot. I did suspect that the 15. of october was the date, as other changes did occur within the Luftwaffe on this date!!

Re: XII. Fl.-Korps/I. Jagdkorps?

Gentlemen,

the Kriegstagebuch - War Diary - of XII. Fliegerkorps / I. Jagdkorps, presently stored at both the Bundesarchiv and the National Archives, states that with effect of September 14th, 1943, GenMaj. Josef Schmid was posted to take over command of the XII. Fliegerkorps, as confirmed by Korpstagesbefehl - order of the day - Nr. 132, issued September 17th, 1943.

On October 15th, 1943, the Technischer Stab XII. Fliegerkorps was renamed Technischer Stab I. Jagdkorps, effective immediately, as registered in the KTB on page 1537 on Oct. 15th, 1943. Consequently the next Tagesbefehl, the first to be issued by I. Jagdkorps, dated October 24th, 1943, was titled Korpstagesbefehl Nr. 1, registered on page 1593 of the KTB.

Hope this helps as far as I. JK is concerned.

Kind regards

Jochen Prien
