On seeing this post, I am glad John's site is helping out, I dont' know how much of it, but I donated a hunk of the records to John's effort, but don't know if I passed all the target dossiers. If there is something you didnt find let me know and I will go though my files.

John,
thanks a lot for access to your excellent map and photo collection! I must admit that it took some time before I learnt how to connect to your FTP server, but after studying FTP-information on the net I managed!!

One question concerning photos: there seem to be rather few - if any photos of the Soviet Polar areas (Murmansk, Kola peninsula, White Sea, Arkhangelsk, Belomorsk, Murman railway stations etc) which were extensively photographed by LW (eg. Kette Lapland of 1.(F)/124). Any hints where such photos can be found?

Best regards,
Carl

I have not found these photos at NARA and because of Covid now is not the time to do research there.
