Can anyone help with standard(?) TO/E's for Luftwaffe light, mixed & heavy Flak Battalions? I'm particularly interested in the late war period (If there is any variations).

Cheers

I do not believe these survived the war. Over the past 30 years, I have been through all of the surviving Luftwaffe records dealing with the Flakartillerie, as well as the majority of the German language published material on the subject, and I have not seen them. All that appears to have survived are the KStN schedule numbers, which can be found in an unpublished 10-volume postwar study of the Flakartillerie that was prepared by War Office M.I.15, the wartime branch of British military intelligence that was exclusively concerned with the Flak branch of the Luftwaffe. This study is available at both the U.S. and British National Archives, and was written using all surviving German documents on the subject as well as hundreds of interviews with former members of the Flakwaffe. Had the KStNs survived the war, they most certainly would have been including in this massive study, but they were not.

Aloha,

I will be visiting NARA next month and the NA (UK) in Kew during July and would very much like to examine this 10 volume postwar study you mention.

Do you have further information as to title, record group, etc., so that I might be able to access this study at either archives?

Mahalo nui loa (thanks a lot)

Russell

Dear Russell,

Welcome to LWAG!

No, not magic, just me trying to get your message to look like you wanted it to. I'll contact the author of this statement and see if I can get him to contact you.

Regards,
Richard
