  1. A not so well known march - Löwengeschwader - the March of Kampfgeschwader 26 In one of the photos, Walter Neusüß is depicted in an official press photo from around October 1939 (third photo from start of clip). Was very surprised when I saw this. Has unfortunately been deleted by youtube - see further down for another recording, mp3 16.9.2019
  2. Unteroffizier Walter Neusüß posted missing, 29.5.1940 This is an original document dated 19.6.1940. It was given to me personally by Liesel Paulmann (née Gottwald, gesch. Neusüß) on 19.6.2006 - 66 years after it was written. The document is addressed to Liesel Neusüß, sent by Luftgaupostamt Hamburg I, Dienststelle der Luftpostnr. L 26 700. It is signed by a Leutnant and commander of the "remainder" - name looks to be Abentaurer or Abentauer(?) The addressee was at Hamburg 43, Tarnowitzer Weg 10 Liesel Neusüß was living there at the time with her parents, Alfred and Martha Gottwald
  3. Finally found the magazine I have been looking for for years. As I had only been able to photograph the remaining pages of a partly surviving copy, I was not certain which publication or issue. For a long time I suspected it could be the magazine "Die Wehrmacht" (publ. by Oberkommando der Wehrmacht), and was either late 1939 or at the latest May 1940. This I discovered last week at an internet address in Speyer (Rheinland-Pfalz, city with a famous romanic cathedral). The magazine turned out to be issue 23 from 8. November 1939 of Die Wehrmacht. The reason for my interest was the article about
  4. Original press photo of Oberst Robert Fuchs, Kommodore of Löwengeschwader - Kampfgeschwader 26 from 29. September 1939 till 15. October 1940. He received the Ritterkreuz from Hitler on 6. April 1940 for the outstanding services of his squadron with its attacks on shipping in the North Sea and the Channel. Unteroffizier Walter Neusüß also took part in these actions, later promoted to Oberfeldwebel. See previous related topics. The text to the rear of the photo is: Kommodore des Löwengeschwaders mit dem Ritterkreuz ausgezeichnet. Der Führer und Oberste Befehlshaber

  6. Grotli, Norway, 27. April 1940, Norwegian film from 2012. From a true story of a forced landing near Narvik, April 1940.
  7. A Luftwaffe navigation instrument as always part of the personal items taken on board, mostly larger aircraft with more than the pilot. This, officially known as a Dreieckrechner for calculating various aspects of navigation, position, altitude, speed and wind. It is two sided. It was first patented by C.E.Plath (Nautical Instruments) of Hamburg-Altona in 1936 and produced by Dennert & Pape of Hamburg-Altona, both firms are, as far as I know still in existence. This item was first introduced as "Baumuster Plath DR2" in 1936 with the designation Fl.23825, which was a special number for Luf
  8. Luftwaffe Badge for qualified Radio Operator, known as Bordfunkerabzeichen, or sometimes as Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel. This example by C.E.Juncker, Berlin SW. The badge is an earlier make of so-called German Silver or Neusilber and in fine quality by this premium maker of long standing. Later examples were made of Zink. Introduced on 26th March 1936 for qualified personnel, it was also awarded to unqualified personnel, who had distinguished themselves in action over so many missions. This was also awarded to flight mechanics and air gunners until December 1941, when a new badge
  9. The Iron Cross has no traces of any silvering (cant see maker as ring is hidden under ribbon), but is made of white metal (Neusilber) and the iron core has a thin black lacquer showing no traces of rust. Is however, an awarded piece and not a second. The Dienstauszeichnung is iron with most of silvering present, just a few little rust stains between some ot lettering of Wehrmacht and is mounted with the Luftwaffe eagle second pattern, which appears to be made of zinc with most of hard silverplate present, which would deem it a midwar variation. The Sudetenland medal has lost some of its finish
  10. A film about the production of the Heinkel He 111. At the beginning is an action scene and mention of the early attacks on Firth of Forth and Scapa Flow - carried out by Kampfgeschwader 26 with Unteroffizier Neusüß. Main production centres were Rostock and Oranienburg. 17 min. 21 sec.
  11. Walter Wilhelm Franz Neusüß (95) passed away after an emergency operation in the Marienkrankenhaus Hamburg, after breaking off his family holidays in Grömitz near Lübeck. Just 16 days later, his daughter, Birgitt Baxmann, neé Neusüss died suddenly at her home in Hamburg. Unfortunately help came too late for her. We, the family are very grieved. She never came to hear of the death of her father, which was kept secret by his present wife, who is much younger and runs the family business, which he started in the postwar years. Walter Neusüss was buried at sea from Grömitz. Birgitt was laid to res

  13. Liesel Neusüss in Königsberg, February - April 1942 Walter Neusüß flew until around end of 1941. After sustaining a further wounding, he was from around January till end of April 1942 in or near Königsberg, firstly for treatment and recovery and then presumably for further training. The wounds he had probably received on the Eastern Front, at the time Kampgeschwader 4 was operating in various sectors in Russia. After the wounds he was no longer with Kampfgeschwader 4. From February till April 1942 his wife came from Hamburg to be nearby. The little daughter, Birgitt, stayed with the grandpa

  15. Two memorials for two World Wars in the small town of Uichteritz an der Saale, near Weissenfels, environment of Leipzig. For such a smal town, there is a very long list of casualties for both wars. One of the first of these casualties of WW2 was Herbert Ranscht, born 8.6.1915, Unteroffizier of 2./ Kampfgeschwader 26, who fell in aerial combat over Rombakken-Fjord near Narvik on 29. May 1940. He was a Kamerad of Walter Neusüß, and was the only one of the crew who did not survive the ordeal of this aerial combat. Ranscht was Bordmechaniker on the He 111. When the machine made a crash-landing n
  16. Today, Sunday, 20. November is in Germany - Totensonntag - a day in which families (Lutheran and Reformed Churches) remember their loved ones. Last Sunday, 13. November was Volkstrauertag, a day, in which the fallen of two World Wars are remembered, the memory gradually diminishing over the years, and finding continually less acceptance. The 1. November is the day in which German, Bavarian and Austrian Catholics remember their loved ones, known as Allerheiligen or All Saints Day. The 9. November was also a very fatefull day in German history. Today is also a birthday of someone no lon

  18. Narvik Schild 1940 A Narvik Schild in silver, mounted on a bluegrey Luftwaffe cloth backing. The Narvik shield was awarded to all personnel, who took part in the batte for Narvik between 9th April and 10th June 1940.

  19.

In later years the function of this document was fulfilled by a Transit Visum. Liesel Neusüß was on a visit to Chemnitz (Saxony), which lay in the postwar Soviet Zone SBZ (Sowjetischische Besatzungszone). In the early postwar days you could travel around with the relevant papers into the Soviet Occupied Zone, entirely at your own risk. It was not unusual
