Oblt Kurt Dahlmann III/KG 30

Was Dahlmann a member of 9/KG 30 and when Oblt Friedrich Rinck was shot down on 27 Jan 41, did he take command of the Staffel?

Re: Oblt Kurt Dahlmann III/KG 30

I don't know the answer but it may help that his RK-EL citation mentions that on 27 January 1941 he bombed the "Moulders and Pieters" ironworks in Newark Notts. from low level, hitting the factory itself and its rail sidings.

Re: Oblt Kurt Dahlmann III/KG 30

Nick: I too have this-he got the Newark factory and Rinck BMARC. It was a popular target for III/KG 30-Dahlmann was after it 23 Nov 40, 27 Jan 41, 30 Jan 41 and 4 Feb 41 but only managed to hit the target on the first & last attacks due to weather

Re: Oblt Kurt Dahlmann III/KG 30

Hi Chris, im particularly interested in Dahlmanns ops you refer to on 23.11.40 and thru January - Febuary 1941 whilst with III/KG30.

Could you add any further detail to these missions, or substantiate Dahlmanns Staffel at the time?
Any further scraps of info greatly appreciated!

Best regs,
Steve.

Re: Oblt Kurt Dahlmann III/KG 30

Dahlmann's staffel is assumed to be 9/KG 30 as the witnesses of his attacks came from that Staffel. His citation lists attacks on 31 Aug 40, 13 Oct 40, 23 Nov 40, 27 Jan 41, 30 Jan 41 and 4 Feb 41 before he heads off to the Med. If you want more, you will probably have to wait for my next book to be published later this year

Re: Oblt Kurt Dahlmann III/KG 30

For those interested, Dahlmann was with 9/KG 30 and at the end of Jan 41 still Leutnant in rank whilst St Kaps for 7 & 8/KG 30 mid-41 were Oblt Heinz-Hugo Schlockermann & Hptm Gerhard Metzenthin
