id on Luftwaffe unit

Post by jan willem stokkers » 18 Nov 2021 19:50

I'am not that much into LW but part of my hobby is collecting death cards of Heeresgruppe Nord and one of them is for Obergefreiter Joh.Bapt.Gschwendtner. I can't get any idea what LW unit he was by reading this extra info. Hope some LW expert can help me with what unit he was in.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe 2. Kompanie Feld-Regiment der Luftwaffe 2.

That's exactly what it is:

2./Feldregiment der Luftwaffe 2
It was formed between December 1941 and January/February 1942 from assorted Luftwaffe personnel cobbled together and pressed into infantry service with four Bataillone (I. - IV.) for assignment to Luftwaffen-Division Meindl in the Lake Ilmen - Staraya Russa area. I. Btl./F.-R.d.Lw. 2 had Feldpostnummer L 30548 and its Kommandeur on 3.9.42 was Obstlt. Joachim von Dülong.
