Quoting directly from the site:

"This site should be a source of information to everyone interested in military operations 1939-1945. The site is apolitical and not related to any right wing party or organization. It gives information about daily operations of all parts of the German Wehrmacht, uniforms, ranks, unit emblems, Orders of battle, Gliederungen and much more."

Emphasis seems to be on the Heer, but there is also good info on the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine. The site address is:

http://www.wwiidaybyday.com/

Sections of interest are:

Daily reports: - A very ambitious undertaking, detailed summaries of each day's activities for the Army, Air Force, and Navy are presented. So far, Sept. 1939 to Aug. 1940 have been covered.

Unit emblems - The emblems are arranged by animal, geometric shape, or miscellaneous, facilitating identifying units by the emblems identifying characteristic. If one wants to find the emblem of a particular unit, a search function allows that to be done.

Uniforms, ranks - Covered in tables and drawings, literally anything you would want to know on the subject is here.

Photos - Arranged by Poland 1939, Norway 1940, and France 1940, these are more theater based than focused on specific pieces of military hardware. There are only a limited number of Luftwaffe related photos.

Medical Korps - Covered in fairly good detail, but not really of Luftwaffe interest.

OoB´s,Gliederungen - Broken down into O.K.H. and Various Order of Battle's, periods covered so far are Sept. 1939 to Jan. 1942 for the O.K.H. OoB's and 1939 to 1940 for the Various OoB's. Weekly O.K.H. Oob's are presented from 3 Sept. 1941 through 16 Jan. 1942.

Maps - Apparently Army battle maps, these cover Poland 1939, Operation "Weserübung" April 1940, and "Fall Gelb" - France 1940.

Battle calendar - Quoting directly from the site:

"The following listing is the official Battle- and engagement calendar of the German Oberkommando 1939-1945 used in personal files/Wehrpass etc.."

This is a very detailed listing.

Veterans of the Wehrmacht - Personal stories. Not Luftwaffe related.

Links - Half a dozen highlighted links. Three special links are noteworthy:

<U>Military museums in Germany</U> - Link site to Military history museums in Germany.

<U>Military History link site</U> - Many links to various military history sites. Seems to cover all history, but also seems to be pretty devoid of links related to the Luftwaffe.

<U>Militaria online</U> - Links to Militaria dealers, Online auctions, Magazines etc.

Regards,
Richard

Nice ! Would like to see...

138.88.72.182

More of the Fw 58 Weihe, I need those fuselage codes...
Also, you could put the man holding the X-Ray 'slab" next to the Ju 87A photo, that's what they flew the dive experiments with.
They were measuring the deformation of the lungs and other organs during "high G" pullouts...

I have that set of LW fotos
Sun Apr 27 02:15:31 2003
152.163.189.235

...the set with the Ju87 experiment with a determined-looking test-patient holding the Xray to his chest. There were several other Medical Services fotos in the set - a grizzled medic giving first aid to paras, etc. I think I gave the rest away, but I kept those two.

Hello Brian!

Unfortunately I don´t have another shot of the "Weihe". And you´re right I will put the x-ray foto next to the Stuka pic.

Focke Wulf Fw 58 was named the Weihe - sort of a German version of the Beech 18/C-45 or Avro Anson.
Used for all sorts of things, small transport, initial training for multi-engine flying, etc, etc..

Stab/KG53 emblem
Tue Feb 24 00:47:13 2004
195.92.67.78

Can anyone help me with an image of the Stab/KG53 emblem, or the KG53 emblem for the Battle of Britain period? I've searched the Intenet via a number of search engines, and ny reference books, with no luck. A photo of a Stab/KG53 He111 from the Battle of Britain period would also be great.

I need these for an article in 'Friends of the Few', the newsletter of The Shoreham Aircraft Museum, Shoreham, Kent, of which I'm the editor.

Cheers Geoff Kennell.

Thanks for the info Allan, but I'm already familiar with that particular website, and it doesn't have the answer to my question.

Thanks anyway.

Geoff.

K.G.53 emblem
Wed Feb 25 07:24:57 2004

Hello!

As far as I know there is no specific emblem for the Stab of K.G.53.
The official emblem of the Geschwader was the "Legion Condor" emblem which is on my site.

regards,
Christoph

ZG2 emblems
Thu Dec 16, 2004 11:00

I'm looking for a copy of the ZG2 emblem, during the Battle of Britain, and also the 2nd Staffel & 1st Gruppe emblems for ZG2 for the same period.

Does anyone have these, or can they point me towards any websites with the relevant emblems?

Cheers

Geoff.
