Hello all after a bit of reading last night found that the 16th Luftwaffe Field Division were the main LFD in Normandy during June - July 1944 and mainly were involved in combat from 17 July during Operation Goodwood.

After several attempts by the allies the Division were finally broken and retreated and joined the 21st Panzer Division. After several days fighting the Division had been reduced to less than 1000 men. Towards the end of the War the remaining men were formed into the Volksgrenider Division i believe.

Sorry to poop on your parade but the flak battalion was detached from 16th Feld Div (L)when the heer took control in November 1943 and became the 1st battalion of Flak regiment 53.
The detachment of Flak units from FD(L) when taken over from the heer looks fairly common. If you want any help on the history of your chosen unit pm me.

Regards,

Paul

Did you dye the sturm smock to make it a darker shade of brown? If so what color did you dye it with and how did you do it?

I know what you mean Tim:

In this picture you can see the comparison between mine and my friends Tarnjacke. He didn`t dye it. It arrived like this from the seller. To make it funnier he bought it at the same place a month after I did.

I'd like to get in on this. I have a splinter smock and army webbing. As far as I know, this is perfectly feasable for late war LFD. Bear in mind I'm not a re-enactor per se, but an airsofter. Pics soon hopefully.

On the field division smock it was common practise to replace the camo shoulder boards with FJ,HG or field division shoulder boards( wool with waffen farbe)

Thanks. My smock has loops and buttons, I take it this is a field mod then, or is it a different pattern?

The loop and button is there to attatch the shoulderboard to.

Hello all!

Have started a thead on WWII Re-enacting under my other name "lanceng156" for anyone who would be interested in a new LFD group formation.

http://www.wwiireenacting.co.uk/forum/v ... 09379f8f4d

The period were interested is post Sept 43 so alot of Heer insignia, awards and equipment is visibly in use by mid 44 and defently by 45.

Danny
