Stab/Aufkl.Gr. 23 (2d Formation)

Code: (6K + )

Formed August 1938 at Eschwege/40 km SE of Kassel (new), although actual formation of the Stab may have been delayed until 1 November 1938. The existence of Stab/Aufkl.Gr. 23 is a matter of some contention since it does not appear is some lists that are supposedly complete compilations of all Luftwaffe units on given dates, especially for 1 September 1939. However, according to the surviving records of the Luftwaffen­Personalamt (Personnel Branch), it did exist (perhaps only on paper?) until it was disbanded on or about 20 September 1939.[1]

FpN:Stab/Aufkl.Gr.23 (L 02744).
