From Osprey "Luftwaffe Air & Ground Crew 1939-45" page 8

Each fleet had three regiments (Luft-Nachriclilenrcgimenter) wilh anything from 1,500 to 9,000 personnel. The senior regiment shared the Flotte number, while the second and third added 10 and 20 to that figure respectively (e.g. Luftllotte 3 contained LN-Regimenter 3. 13 & 23). Each regiment was commanded by a
Hohere Nachrichtenfuhrer (higher signals leader) with the rank of Oberstleutnant, and consisted of three to five LuftNachrichtenabteilungen - including one Ersatzabteilung - a battalion being commanded by a Major and his staff of 40-50 officers and men. A battalion averaged three to four (or rarely, up to 20) LuftNachrichtcnkompanicn, each under a Hauptmann, Each was permanently attached to, commanded by, and named after a combat
Geschwader e.g. 1-N-Kompanie KG 77. The company was divided into three to six Luft-Nachrichtenzuge, each specialising in a particular discipline: telephone, teletype, cable-laying, construction, radio, batterycharging, vehicle maintenance, radio- and light-beacon platoons. Each Zug contained between five and ten Luft-Nachrichientruppen. the basic operational unit, each of 10 to 20 men.
