Luftwaffe supply company (Nachschubkompanie)

Post by germankid » 22 Jan 2020 04:33

My grandfather was a member of the Luftwaffen-Nachschub-Kompanie 5/XII.
That would be a supply company for the German air force. I believe it may have been based in Wiesbaden. Does anyone know where this company would have been located and where it was deployed during the Second World War?
