I am trying to ascertain the identity of the Hauptmann who held the position of Staka 1.(F)/Aufklärungsgruppe 123 during May-1944.

Could it be Hauptmann Helmut Wippersteg?

Any help will as always be gratefully received.

Regards Richard.

Richard,

According to an Offizier Stellenbesetzung that I have this Hauptmann was Staka until May 1944.

Thank you for that, I raised the question is due to several signed entries in a Wehrpass to a Beobachter in 1.(F)/123 who was listed as missing in the first week of May-1944, and was looking for verification of Hauptmann Helmut Wippersteg holding that post in this time.

I understand Hauptmann Helmut Wippersteg was in fact KIA a short time later on 23-May-1944.

Thanks for your help as always.

Regards Richard

Richard,

Glad to be of help.

One of my long outstanding tasks is to build a Personnel listing for 123 along the same lines as the one that I have for 122.

Andy, I will be in touch soon reference the Wehrpass in question (when it eventually arrives through the post!) and pass the details on to you for the Personnel listing for (F)/123. By the way he also flew with 2.(F)/122 prior to that.

In the meantime, below is from the recently released Luftwaffe Officer Career Summaries:

WIPPERSTEG, Helmut. (DOB: 1913). 01.08.39 Oblt., in A./Fl.Ausb.Rgt. 31. 01.04.42 promo to Hptm. (n.d.) Hptm. in Stab/Aufkl.Gr. 122. 10.06.43 Hptm. in Offiziere z.b.V./Ob.d.L. (Sch.Etat), trf to 2.(F)/Aufkl.Gr. 11. c.10.43 Hptm., appt Staka 1.(F)/Aufkl.Gr. 123 (to 05.44). †28.06.44.

Regards Richard.

Richard,

Thanks for that information and the additional details in the future.

Yes, I have downloaded a copy of the Career Summaries and have made a start comparing them to my off-line 122 Personnel lists. I have a lot of updating to do in this area from losses and have found a few officers that Larry and Doug have but who as yet do not figure in my lists.
