Hello,

found another pic with Helferinnen. This time from a searchlight battery that was stationed in Postmoor (near Stade) in spring 1945. Am I mistaken or are they wearing M44 uniforms?

Hi,

once more searchlight girls. Why are there so many pictures of Helferinnen with searchlights? Is the combination a uniformed women and heavy machinery a particularly attractive motif?

"Biltz Mädchen" by Franz W. Seidler ..............

Hello,

two more portraits of female personell.

Elfriede Neukum,another survivor of the Gustlof desaster.

Ruth Krupizka worked as a radio operator for the Luftwaffe in Roumenia transmitting weather forecasts. She was ground based but friendly pilots occasionally arranged free flights for the girls. The last picture shows her in the cockpit of a Ju52.

They are, but not men's M44s. Notice how the jackets button: right over left, rather than left over right. Although I can't see the details well from the photo, the trousers are probably also specifically female, cut differently than men's to fit a female body and issued to Helferinnen.

This image appears to have part of a double exposure on it. If you look to the right of the photo, where the fence is. It appears to be part of the reichskriegflagge.

Probably because there were so many Flakwaffenhelferinnen---around 170,000 of them by 1944---working on searchlights, sound detection equipment, etc.
