Re: Luftwaffe Personnel spying for Allies?

Hi Nick,

thanks for the info. The online catalogue only showed the date range for this file (as least a year ago) as being "1945" so when I requested docs from Jan-Mar I was told that there were no such docs on file!

Now I can put in another request for Apr...

Cheers

Rod

Good luck, Dennis!!

I know the feeling you describe, and the first few visits to the Bundesarchiv was a tough struggle not to ask for files that were a bit off the current topic but were extremely tempting (especially with regards to the description in the Findbuch) to look at!

I will ask Francis about the radio intercepts.

Regards,
Andreas

Re: Luftwaffe Personnel spying for Allies?

I've just started sifting through HW5 series on my two previous visits to NA and it is going to be a long trip considering the amount of material. It is quite an improvent on DEFE3 as well, not only it is more eye friendly than bloody microfilms, but it also fill some of the gaps on top of DEFE3 material.
I still didn't catch the meaning of those B% and C% signs, I suppose they are placed instead of missing digits, but sometimes they turn up where you don't expect them. I also noticed map references in form 'letter letter digit letter', I am not sure I've sen them before

They are the equivalent to DEFE3's "strong indications" and "fair indications" respectively, showing a degree of uncertainty about the digit, letter or word that follows.
