DEFE3 Files

Guys,

I don't know if any of you will find these of use.

I have reviewed and summarised the following DEFE3 files from a Luftwaffe perspective and produced pdf files of those summaries.

My original aim had been to find Aufklgr 122 items within these files - which I have been fortunate enough to do so. However, this grew into producing - for myself - a record of all Luftwaffe orientated messages within the files that I have reviewed and summarised.

The files concerned are

DEFE 3/14 covers the decryption period between 20th December 1943 and 23rd December 1943
DEFE 3/15 covers the period between 23rd December 1943 and 27th December 1943
DEFE 3/16 covers the period between 27th December 1943 and 1st January 1943–
DEFE 3/17 covers the decryption period between 1st January 1944 and 5th January 1944
DEFE 3/18 covers the decryption period between 5th January 1944 and 8th January 1944
DEFE 3/19 covers the decryption period between between 8 January 1944 and 12 January 1944
DEFE 3/129 covers the decryption period between 12th January 1944 and 15th January 1944
DEFE 3/130 covers the decryption period between 15th January 1944 and 19th January 1944
DEFE 3/131 covers the decryption period between 19th January 1944 and 22nd January 1944
DEFE 3/132 covers the decryption period between 22nd January 1944 and 25th January 1944
DEFE 3/133 covers the decryption period between 25th January 1944 and 28th January 1944

Currently being worked on DEFE3/134 (covering the decryption period between 28th January 1944 and 31st January 1944). It will be a while until this is completed as I work on these files in between other things.e.g. the Tsamo 12452 index.

The files can be downloaded from the Luftwaffedata Wiki here.

Each page in the link also provides a connection to download the original DEFE3 pdf file from The National Archives.

Please note that some of the earlier summaries are less detailed than the later ones, at some point I will go back and revise these early files.

Hope that someone finds them of interest/use.
