    Hi Bob, it will be for a man in 10 Kompanie / Luftwaffe Jager Regt 59.

    These were ill fated Infanterie units raised by the Luftwaffe. Goring was loathe to turn over surplus manpower to the Heer (all part of losing face and of course power) and the Luftwaffe Feld Divisions were the unhappy result. The units were poorly trained & badly led and most suffered in the fighting in the East as a result. This was a real disgrace and is not a reflection of the men themselves. Had Goring simply had them transfered the men would have faired much better.

    Cheers, Ade.
