    Default Seeking information on a Feldpost number

    I am trying to confirm (if possible) the identity of a unit - I have a Feldpost number for it -- L.52428 (?). I think this is a flak unit of some type, with a rough designation of (as I can make it out) 2/I E. Batt.

    the unit seems to have been in the area of Weisbaden on Dec 7, 1944 as the note mailed to report a missing soldier was from there.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sorry to keep bothering you, but I have located 1 more post number for this guy -

    L 50845 in Wiesbaden. 14 January, 1945

    I did confirm that the information before was right on, (managed to translate and decipher the hand writting with the clues). If you can pop this one out it would be much appreciated....
