    My uncle was in this unit from 1940-43 and I was trying to get as much information on it as possible. Locations where they operated and possibly what his occupation was within the unit. Anyone have any suggestions where I could obtain some information.

    Thank you

    Hello,
    Sorry to say but i have never heard of this Luftwaffe unit before and there's nothing about it in Lexikon der Wehrmacht...

    Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    I hope someone else can help you out...
    Thanks
    There's a new Spiess in the youtube garrison, so 150 push-ups in a row, 15 stadium laps and no leave for the next month for all those who don't type " d3rNooB Spi3ss " in the YT search bar......Verstanden ?

    It has to be Luftgau-Nachrichten-Regiment 11; the -"334" suffix after the regiment's number makes no sense.

    Luftgau-Nachrichten Regiment 11 was the air force signals regiment subordinate to Luftgau XI (Hannover).

    It's absolutely impossible to tell you anything about your uncle's occupation within the regiment without knowing anything about him.

    Hello,
    The number 334 does make sense if the infos about the unit come from the Erkennungsmarke.
    In this case 334 is the number identifying the soldier within Luftgau-Nachrichten Regiment 11, but i guess you already know that....
    Thanks

    Thank you gentlemen. In his Wherpass, it has indicated, "1/4/43-12/5/42 Sicherung Griechenlands (protection of Greece). I've looked, but haven't been able to identify anything about that Regiment in Greece. Any ideas?

    This is the only thing I have been able to find out about the Luftgau-Nachrichten troops in Greece :-

    Luftgau-Nachrichten-Regiment Südost

    Kommandeure:
    • Obstlt Adolf Mauser, 10.41 - 1.1.43

    Stab:
    Formed 10.41 in Athens.
    On 1.1.43 renamed Stab/Luftnachrichten-Regiment Südost.
    I. Abteilung:
    Formed 10.41 in Athens.
    On 1.1.43 renamed Stab I./Luftnachrichten-Regiment Südost.
    • 3. Nachrichten-Kompanie in Athens from Luftnachrichten-Fernsprech-und-Fernschreib-Betriebs-Personal-Kompanie 303; 1.1.43 renamed 3./Luftnachrichten-Regiment 40
    • 4. Nachrichten-Kompanie in Athens (new); 1.1.43 renamed 4./Luftnachrichten-Regiment 40

    1.-2./Lg.Südost were probably never formed, although Allied intelligence does list a 1. Kompanie in Saloniki.
    II. Abteilung:
    Formed 11.41 in Eleusis from Stab/schwere Flugmelde-Abteilung Südgriechenland.
    On 1.1.43 renamed Stab III./Luftnachrichten-Regiment 40.
    • 21. schwere Flugmelde-Kompanie in Kalamai(?) from 2./schwere Flugmelde-Abteilung Südgriechenland; 1.1.43 renamed 11./Luftnachrichten-Regiment 40
    • 22. schwere Flugmelde-Kompanie in Eleusis from 3./schwere Flugmelde-Abteilung Südgriechenland; 1.1.43 renamed 12./Luftnachrichten-Regiment 40
    • 23. schwere Flugmelde-Kompanie in Athens(?) (new); 1.1.43 renamed 13./Luftnachrichten-Regiment 40

    I can tell you that several entries indicate he was attached to a unit that did (Tel. Bau) Telegraph line construction and (Fspr. Bau) telephone line construction. Most of the active service was with (mot.) Motorized Regiments. This indicates the construction work was most likely Schweres (Heavy) involving the erection of poles and the use of heavy transport for cables and equipment. NH
