Dear Andrew,

Thanks for the answer! After having posted the question I have visited two museums in Chania, Crete last week. See for more information in the near future the "Archives in the Mediterranean region" section. In the Naval Museum of Crete in Chania I have bought "The lost battle" Crete 1941 from Callum MacDonald. Macmillan London.1995. By far the best book about Crete, May 1941 I have seen. If you are interested in the airwar anuway. For the groundwar I think "The struggle for Crete" from Stewart is the best.

In this book MacDonald gives as sources he has used from the Imperial War Museum, London: XI Fliegerkorps, 'Operation Crete'. But no date.
From the RAF Historical Branch, London he has used: Invesion of Crete - Report by Luftflotte 4, VII/24. Also without date.
So maybe the originals are in England and does the AWM in Australie has a copy.

Thanks and we will continue in our research!
