I found your posting of 16 March, Karl. It was by now 7 pages back. Many thanks for all of the additional information on your grandfather's career and postings, which I found to be very interesting. The history of these small units of the Bodenorganisation, Flak and Ln. are pretty well lost for all time, except for a few surviving diaries and the letters home written to wives, girlfriends and families by the veterans. It is truly a shame that the stellv.Archiver d.Luftwaffenarchiv gave the order to destroy the hundreds of tons of Luftwaffe records at Karlsbad/Sudetenland in the last week of the war.

Thanks again,

Steve W.
