Luftzeuggruppe 12 Feldluftzeugruppe research

Post by maxuechtritz » 01 Nov 2019 02:44

I am trying to find information on the basing on Werft-Abt. (v) 109.XII Luftzeuggruppe 12 and Feldluftzeuggruppe at Saint Georges-Motel in Normandy. Listed as being there June 1940 - ? and 1940 - Dec 43 respectively.
This information from a Luftwaffe bases in france in WW2.
This is further to my posts of trying to get information and images from the Luftwaffe officers' occupation of the Château de Saint-Georges-Motel during those years.

I can confirm that Feldluftzeuggruppe Westfrankreich, which was formed from Luftzeuggruppe 12 on 1 June 1940, was stationed at Saint Georges-Mötel from summer 1940 until it was ordered disbanded on 16.12.43.
Oberst Otto Zech (01.06.40 - 30.09.40)
Gen.Maj. Gustav Banse (01.10.40 - 30.07.43)
Gen.Lt. Ernst Dörffler (30.07.43 - 01.01.44)

As for the Werftabteilung (v), Werft-Abt. 109/XII was stationed at Groß-Sachsenhain during fall 1944 and into 1945. Prior to that, it might have been part of or attached to Fliegerhorstkommandantur E 7/XVII at Dreux, but that is just an educated guess.

That's all I have.
