Luftgau-Nachrichten-Regiment 11

Postby DGoss » 01 Mar 2017 02:14

My uncle was part of this Nachrichten regiment from 1940-1942 and then made the transition into a JU-88 where he was ultimately killed in June 1943.

I was wondering if anyone has knowledge where he would have been located with the Nachrichten?

His Wehrpass indicates he was probably in Holland somewhere from Nov 24 1940 - June 30 1941 and then someplace else, but it does not specify. It looks like from July 1 1941 - Sept 9 1942.

Any help would be appreciated.

Daryl -

He was only assigned to 20./Luftgau-Nachrichten-Rgt. (mot.) 11 from 1 October 1940 to 23 November 1940. That's 54 days. During that entire time the company was at Hannover-Bemerode. He then moved around:
24 Nov 40 - 01 Jun 41: 2.(Tel.Bau)/Luftverteidigungs-Nachrichten-Abt. 1. This came under Luftverteidigungskommando 1 Berlin, but the telegraph construction men who belonged to it, as your uncle did, could have been running/installing lines just about anywhere across northern Germany and Holland. "Luftverteidigungskommando 1" means Air Defense Command 1. It had command and control of the Flakartillerie in the Berlin area.
01 Jun 41 - 09 Sep 42: 4.(Fspr.Bau) Kompanie (FFK)/Ln.-Abt. (mot) 39. His 4.(Fspr.Bau) Kp. constructed/installed telephone lines and switchboards during this entire period in Holland, Belgium and northern France. "FFK" means Feldfernkabel or long distance field cable.
10 Sep 42: he was accepted for air crew training and was sent to 3./Bordschützen-Anwärter-Batl. 1 at Schwetz on the Vistula River to be kept busy with basic weapons training until he was called to attend air gunnery school at Bordschützenschule 7 at Graudenz.

You can do the rest.
