    A news paper:

    Nice group of relics - did they provide any photos of them being excavated? Easy to forget in the excitement but goes such a long way to proving the provenance ( and IMO adding to the overall presentation )

    Hi Dan
    Thank you very much, yes it is a pity we don´t know where it all has been found, but If someone know where the Squadron was located from these info, or other informations from the jigsaw papers . But we know the year 1944 from the papers :-)

    Staffeltrupp
    m.Gr.W.- Gruppe
    Gruppe Groiss
    Zug Ahlborn
    Zug vogler

    Best regards
    John
