Hi all,

Can anyone tell me whereabouts the various staffeln of II./JG 26 were based during February 1944, 7./JG 26 in particular?

Cheers!

All i know is that II./JG 26 was stationed at Cambrai-Epinoy from March 17th 1943 until 17th March 1944.

Epinoy Airfield today, parts of the old Runway triangel still visible:

Thanks Otto, it's a start and appropriate to the mission i'm building so it'll do.

I know that the true nature of Luftwaffe dispositions was very changeable; the Gruppe Stab flight and elements of one other staffel might be based at this as their HQ airfield, with the other staffeln spread over bases in the area so i'll just have to keep digging to confirm.

Much obliged anyhow!

Caldwell's two volumes on JG26 are the most detailed in English and should provide the info you need. Unfortunately I cannot find my copies at present but will let you know shortly if they surface. Expect my nephew has them.
