    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post. I am a Swiss engineer who in 2011 wrote a book about captured Luftwaffe aircraft. It is basically a collection of unpublished photos of captured German aircraft taken by US or British soldiers. I researched the history of each aircraft and their crew as thorough as it was possible to me.

    For my next book, I am researching the shooting down of a Junkers Ju 88 on 8 May 1945 by the 204th Antiaircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons Battalion (AAA AW Bn). Since 6 May 1945, it was attached to the 71st AAA Group (52nd AAA Brigade, IX Air Defense Command, Ninth Air Force) and was based at airfield R-11 (Eschwege) in Germany.

    What I am trying to find out is:

    • To which AAA Group was the 204th AAA AW Bn attached before 6 May and where was it stationed in 1945?
    • How long has it already been at airfield R-11? I think it arrived sometimes in the second half of April 1945, but I am not sure.
