FPN 28420

Formed May - September 1939 at Varel/Lower Saxony (new) with Dornier Do 17Ps.

The exact date of formation is unclear.

According to Tessin, formation may have been ordered on 1 May 1939 but did not actually occur until mid-summer.

Other sources give a September 1939 formation date.

However, the surviving evidence indicates that the Staffel was not yet operational on 1 September, but was so by the latter part of the month.[1]
