Perhaps I have slighted you in another life? I do not come here to 'leach' your free time or others. I do not, nor have I ever, professed to be an expert in everything Luftwaffe. It was such a huge organisation I am sure there is no-one out there that knows everything, and sometimes everyone needs a little pointer in the right direction. This is, I'm sure, the purpose of this forum. I do not have any items of Luftwaffe memorabilia except for photographs.
The pilot in question was Hauptmann Martin Becker, who I interviewed on several occasions before he passed away in The question of why he was with this unit did not arise until after he died. He was with the unit for several months, he was not injured, disciplined or 'washed out' In fact he had outstanding reports and assessments.
Please feel free to call upon me at any time you require any reciprocal assistance in the future - no charge of course! Thank you for your help.
Hi Philippe, Yes I am. Another reason for being somewhat taken aback by Mr de Zeng's comments. All the best, David. I believe that his questions are in support of a proposed book, the questions arising he has been unable like many on this Forum to solve. Regards Chris. Good morning Chris.

Thank you for your professional and kind comments. I am still in the service, less than 5 years now to retirement. You are correct with the proposed book. I hope to have the Becker book finished this year, but it has been on the back boiler for some 6 years now due to work commitments. My knowledge concerning Luftwaffe ground units and organisation is somewhat limited and the forum is strongly represented with many experts and enthusiasts whose knowledge is second to none.
Perhaps you, or others, here could give me some pointers as to relevant books or other written sources. I felt somewhat slighted by the 'money' comment, but as far as I am concerned the matter is now closed. Thank you again for your comments. Retirement eh? I had qualified for my pension before you ask! Good to hear there is life after the service, as I joined at 19 and know nothing else.
Not sure what I'll do afterwards but I'm sure something will come up. All the best,. Williams - In an earlier post in this thread, you mentioned a Soldbuch and the entries there in. Soldbuecher are a collectible and usually purchased, sold and traded by militaria collectors. I made a fair assumption. You also reacted somewhat negatively to the post made by SES. My comment was an attempt to explain SES's reaction.
SES is a highly respected colleague and I will always rise to his defense when I believed him to be on solid ground.
Next time just ask if someone can interpret the entries in a Soldbuch and e-mail a scan of it to the volunteer. My co-author, Doug, and I have done close to 2, Luftwaffen-Karteikarten over the past year and a half and these are nearly identical to the Soldbuch entries. We would be glad to help. OK, guys, this thread seems to have calmed down.
But, let me reiterate that personal commentary on people's motives have no place on the forum. If you don't like it, don't answer a post.

If you think something is way out of line email me or Nick and we'll take a look. Both of us monitor the site several times a day. As for people "using the site" for profit or whatever, that is your choice to reply or not.
Well organised, but definitely a reference work rather than entertaining reading. A "must" for anyone working on RAF nocturnal losses. Would benefit from the addition of guidance regarding tracing of claims made by the Air Gunners of Luftwaffe night bombers. A specialist book but extremely interesting. Not for casual readers! We'll take a look and remove the review if it doesn't follow our guidelines.
