Lüken, Alfred or Ulfert, Major

In pursue of my own LW interests, I have come across the name of one Lüken, Alfred or Ulfert.

In the Luftwaffe Officer Career Summary I found the following: LÜKEN, Alfred. 16.06.43 Oblt., appt Ic/Jagdfliegerführer 2.

The above does not correspond to my find, which is as follows:

An atypical officer of the Luftwaffe, Alfred or Ulfert Lüken was a painter mobilized at the beginning of war, received the rank of major (possibly because on the account of his advanced age - 45), and spent the war in the Fliegerhorst Jever. A PDF copy of his bio is attached.

Considering the difference, it is likely another Alfred for the database.

Regards,
Sinisa

Hmmm..............

Jagdfliegerführer 2 (2. Jagddivision)
(FpN: L 24146?)

Jagdfliegerführer:
Oberst Johann Schalk (1 Dec 43 - c. 31 Mar 44)

Formation and History. (Dec 43 - Mar 44)
Formed 1 December 1943 at Stade/35 km WNW of Hamburg by renaming Stab/Jagdfliegerführer Deutsche Bucht. Assigned to 2. Jagddivision as a component of the Divisionsstab rather than as an independent command. Responsible for fighter defenses over northwest Germany. On 11 December a Bf 110G-3 belonging to Jafü 2 ran out of fuel and force landed at Noorbrök with 50% damage. Shortly after that the Stab moved from Stade to Jever/15 km WNW of Wilhelmshaven. Disbanded at Jever in late March or early April 1944.

"Jever" is common to both your bibliography and the history of Jafü 2.
