Luftwaffe tag?

Article about: No, I wasn't able to find any reasonable 'translation' of that abbreviation; the unit listing is very short and simply mentions 4 Batterien and that's it. And it's K. A. ST. , not K. A. S. T

    Translated info on the Flieger Ausbildungs Regiments from Lexikon Der Wehrmacht

    The Aviator training regiments were the first station of a soldier who was in the Air Force.

    Here were operated:
    In the training battalion of the regiment:
    - Basic training and infantry-Gundausbildung
    - Sighting the soldiers for further use
    - Backup tasks at the site

    This training differed only in the extent of the infantry of the army, that was screened in the training battalion already for the regiment belonging to aircraft Leader school. (technical understanding, etc.)

    Very nice inka- must have been a lot of Luftwaffe personnel at that particular site. The first of this second batch is from Ersatz-Abteilung Regiment General Göring, then there's Flak-Ersatz-Abteilung 36 and Luftnachrichten Funk Ersatz Kompanie (mot.) 18 (18. Feld-Division?)
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
