Jagdabschnittsführer Bordeaux

(FpN: none found)


Maj. Walter Spies? (c. 1 Jan 44 - Jul 44)

Formation. (Jan 44)

Formed December 1943 or on 1 January 1944 at Fp. Bordeaux-Merignac and assigned to II. Jagdkorps/Luftflotte 3. There were few German fighters in southwest France aside from III./ZG 1 and training aircraft, so Jagdabschnittsführer Bordeaux was probably little more than a small sector control center with relatively little to do. Still at Bordeaux-Merignac on 26 June, but now under 5. Jagddivision. Ordered disbanded in July 1944.[1]
