Luftwaffendivision See

(FpN: none found)

also as: Lw.-See-Division

Existence originally thought to be doubtful, but a Divisionsstab with this name was at Grossenbrode on the Baltic coast on 8 May 1945 and subordinated (at least) Fliegerführer See at Grossenbrode (Oberst Stockmann), Kdo.Lw.-Vers.- See at Kiel (Oberst Hans Virchow), Seenotgruppen 80 and 81. However, no document or other credible source has ever been found that comprehensively details the purpose of this command. It may have remained in existence after the surrender and used by the Allies for various purposes until July.[1]
