Hamburg march 1940

Post by Valtoro » 02 Dec 2023 20:08

What kind of war diaries from Luftwaffe units has survived from the Hamburg area for march 1940? I'm looking for something that cover interceptions of enemy planes, attacks and airfields for this month.

JG 1 based at Jever was scrambled for many of the raids on Hamburg.
Airfields: see www.ww2.dk > menu in left margin > "Luftwaffe Airfields 1935-1945".
Tagesmeldung d. Ob.d.L. on the BA-MA website - many of these survived for the 1940-41 period.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you have a more detailed RL-signature for the Tagesmeldungen? I checked Invenio without finding them. Any suggestions to relevant digitised holdings for this case?

The best place to go for all of your questions concerning Hamburg in March 1940 is:

http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/

Under SEARCH at the top enter: Invenio.

If this doesn't work, you can either post a question or contact Andy Mitchell on his https://www.luftwaffedata.co.uk website.

The TOCH website has nearly daily references to Invenio. I think the "Supermoderator", Nick Beale, has researched his way through just about all of BA-MA's files using Invenio.
