• I'm almost 20 years busy with a research of a Lancaster (582 Sqn 6O-T ND714) crash who crashed in De Panne (La Panne) Belgium 14-15 June 1944.
    The Lancaster was returning from a bombing mission as Master Bomber on the marshalling yards of Douais (France).
    The Aircraft was shot down by a German Nightfighter Oblt Werner Hopf (8 / NJG 5).
    The place where the lancaster crashed was between Stp Mckensen & HBK Duinhoek near the French - Belgian border.
    I have the German report (Formblatt 2) of the Fliegerhorstkommandantur (Wevelghem) its says that the 2 Füselier Kompanie F.P. Nr. 58677 C guarded the aircraft. Can somebody help me with the FP Nr., which Unit or Regiment they belong to & where I can find a fieldreport of 14-15 June 1944.
    Thanks a lot,
    Warrant Officer (Belgian Air Force)

  • Hello Johan,

    the questioned Feldpostnummer belonged to
    (8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 11.2.1944 Stab u. 1.-4. Kompanie Füsilier-Bataillon 148,
    (23.4.1944-24.11.1944) 6.12.1944 Stab u. 1.-4. Kompanie Füsilier-Bataillon 48.

    At June 1944 the unit must have been 2.Kompanie Füsilier-Bataillon 148.
    It belonged to 48. Infanterie-Divisionand had been renamed to Füsilier-Bataillon 48.
