Yellow markings on Me 109's

Hello,

There have been some postings regarding yellow markings on Me 109's. See an interesting note below - from KTB Befehlshaber der Sicherung der Nordsee.

7.4.41

1922 Jafü Deutsche Bucht teilt BSN, F.d.M. und F.d.V. Nord durch FS mit:”Sämtliche Jagdflugzeuge BF 109 sind mit einem gelben Erkennungsanstrich ringsherum bis an die Flügelwurzeln versehen. Tragfläche und Leitwerk sind nicht mehr besonders gekennzeichnet. Es wird gleichzeitig darauf aufmerksam gemacht, daß auch BF 109 ohne diese Anstrich z.B. als Überführungsflugzeug das Luftgaugebiet berühren können. Das Fehlen des Anstrichs darf daher nicht dazu führen, daß diese Flugzeuge als feindlich angesprochen werden.”

13.8.41 Erkennungsanstrich eigener Jagdflugzeuge:

0800 FT 0740/58 KlN von Gruppe Nord geht ein: “Kr.Kr. Alle. Ab sofort Erkennungsanstrich eigener Jagdflugzeuge 1) Unterseite Motorhaube gelb 2) ganz Propellernabe schwarz.”



This might explain some mysterious markings.

Best wishes,
Rob

Thanks for that Rob - after running it through BabelFish it came out as:-

"7.4.41 BSN, F.d.M. and F.d.V. north divides 1922 Jafue German bay by telex mit:"Saemtliche fighters BF 109 is provided with a yellow painting of recognition to to the wing roots. Bearing area and tail unit are not any longer particularly characterized. It is made at the same time on the fact attentive that also BF can affect 109 without this painting e.g. as car ferry air-gauge-offered. The absence of the painting may not therefore lead to the fact that these airplanes are addressed as hostile." 13.8.41 painting of recognition of own fighters: 0800 FT 0740/58 KlN of group of north is received: "Kr.Kr. everything. Immediately painting of recognition of own fighters 1) lower surface hood yellow 2) completely boss black." Even allowing for the "car ferry air-gauge" phrase it is nice to read an official explanation. - many thanks - Allan

Allan, have you ever been "car ferry air-gauge-offered"? Must be an interesting experience.

Hi
from http://www.freetranslation.com/

note this gives phrase 'transfer plane '

maybe combining the two will give a bit more ..
Cheers
Jerry

7.4.41
BSN, F. d. M divides 1922 Jafü German bay. and F. d. V. North through FS with: ”all fighter planes BF 109 are equipped with a yellow Erkennungsanstrich round about up to the wing root. Deceit area and Leitwerk especially are marked no longer. It is made simultaneously on that attentively that also BF 109 can touch the Luftgaugebiet without this Anstrich for example as a transfer airplane. The being missing of the Anstrichs may lead therefore not in addition, addressed become that these airplanes as hostile.”

Fighter planes characteristic 13.8.41 Erkennungsanstrich:

0800 FT 0740/58 KlN of group north goes in: “Kr. Kr. Everyone. From fighter planes 1 characteristic immediately Erkennungsanstrich) underside motor hood yellow 2) entirely propeller hub blackly.”
