Stab/Aufkl.Gr. 41 (2nd Formation)

Re-established or reactivated around March or April 1940 for the campaign in the West, although its assignment is not known. On 13 August 1940 it was listed as being in West France, possibly at or in the vicinity of Royan on the Bay of Biscay, under IV. Fliegerkorps/Luftflotte 3 with 2.(H)/Aufkl.Gr. 13, 1.(H)/Aufkl.Gr. 41 and 2.(H)/Aufkl.Gr. 41. Nothing further is known, but it is likely that the Stab was dissolved a few months later after the decision had been made to postpone the planned invasion of England.[1]
