I have been researching this Luftwaffe officer for many years and need just one piece of the jigsaw for it to be completed and that is to obtain a photo/picture of him. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Derek,

Can't help with your request for a photo but I was wondering if you could fill in the gaps in Werner's career.

This is what I have.

KG 257 10/12/39-3/6/40, Stab/II.Fl.Kps. ?-7/44, Gr.Kdr. II./KG 26 7/44(11/8/44?)-11/44(2/12/44?), Stab/Gen d.LW Dänemark 11/44-?

Any info on unit assignments between 6/40-7/44 would be much appreciated.

Best Regards

Andy (F)

I haven't forgotten Andy. Hopefully next couple of days I'll get back to you. As a matter of interest I have in my collection a few of Otto Werner's private awards and personal items. I'll e-mail pictures if you wish.Regards
Derek

Hi Andy. Here's a few belated pieces of info on our man Werner.
Originally a Kriegsmarine man who served on Cruisers Niobe and Karlsruhe and held rank of Petty Officer 2nd Class (1933). Served on battleship Admiral Scheer with rank of Lieutenant. Then transferred to Luftwaffe (1 May 1935).. Stab der Fuhrer der Seeluft West (to HQ of the Commander of Naval Aviation West) (1.11.39). Hptmn Stab/Gen L.w. beim Ob.d.M (Staff of the Commander of Maritime Aviation Forces) (16.4.1942). Transferred into the General Staff of the Luftwaffe (the designation "(i.G)" following his rank means "in Generalstab" (in the General Staff) (1.1.1943) - at this point he became Major-.
transferred to the general staff of Luftwaffe 5 (13,3,43). Transferred to IV/KG26 for aerial torpedo training and appoint commander of the group (probationary).
There's a book by Rudi Schmidt all about KG26 which I've got somewhere but it is all in German (I think the title was something Torpedo Los). There's only 2 brief mentions of Werner.
I don't have info on his awards but I do have a few personal pieces of his so if you let me have your e-mail address I'll scan them and send them down to you if you wish.
Regards
Derek

Hi Derek,

Thanks for the data on Werner. Sorry for the delay in thanking you but I've been away for a couple of weeks with no access to a computer.

My e-mail address is as listed in the membership list.

Best Regards
