    Using that particular example the unit is for 1 Kompanie of Luftnachrichten-Abt 7. If the FpNr has a letter at the end then that letter indicates what Kompanie it belonged to.

    So for example, using your FpNr of 01797C - letter stamped 23.6.40 the entry for that is Stab I, 1.-4. Kompanie Infanterie-Regiment 40. So the C at the end of the FpNr indicates 2 Kompanie as A would be for Stab, B for 1 Kompanie and so on.

    Thank you Hucks - using that guide I will do some more translating of the letters and see what I come up with.
    I still think it will be problematic unless I have the letters home from more than one member of the family?
    Thanks again for your help.
    Cheers,Dan
