Orlov -

Here are the only two school or training units based at Bobruisk that I have ever found. "Bombenfliegerschule Bobruisk" was an informal reference to IV./KG 51, I believe, because the Nachtfluglehrgang was there for night navigation and instrument training rather than bomb training.

School Units: Nachtfluglehrgang 2/BFS 2 (Apr – Jul 43).
Reserve Training & Replacement Units: IV./KG 51 (Jan 42 – Aug 43).
