Wekusta 51

Hello everyone.

I happen to have some pages of a photoalbum of a reconnaisance air gunner. It's a pity that the photos have been glued, so I cannot read the inscriptions. The only hint about the unit is a photo of a JU 88 with the code 4T. I cannot read the last part of it, cause it has not been captured in the pic. After some reaserch I have found out that the code corresponds to that of the Wekusta 51.

Do you have any info about commanders, crews, losses or else?

Thank you in advance, Elia

Hello,

You will find a complete reply to your questions in the book "Wekusta, Luftwaffe Meteorological Reconnaissance Units & Operations 1939-1945", pages 140-148, from John A. Kington and Franz Selinger, published in 2006.
