    Thanks for the input Map. I was reading much the same but think it may be Halb... rather than Helb… as can't fins a lufti airfield listed for helb…..

    Best guess at moment is Halberstadt as the cap is pre war manufacture I reckon and this airfield has a training school so wondered if the stamp may be referring to the training squadron for fighters ?

    A best guess at present.

    Halberstadt was my guess, too or (Kiel-) Holtenau.

    Could be Halberstadt, but even though I can't read all the letters, I can't see the space for that many. But hard to see so could be wrong

    Could it begin with "Holt"? Instead of Halb or Helb?

    If you look at the 2nd letter (a, e or o) it does not look like the other "a" or "e" used in the other words.

    (EDIT:Sorry...didn't see your post 7.)

    I dug this up. Don't know how comprehensive it is but it's a list of Luft airfields
