What is: 1st Flieger Ergänzung Gruppe (See) & "BV-138-B1"

Recommended Posts

Fellow collectors and researchers:

I am trying to piece together some information about a former crewman of HSK STIER. After getting rescued, I believe he was assigned in Nov 1942 to the Luftwaffe's 1st Flieger Ergänzung Gruppe (See). (Specifically: BV-138-B1 as a Flight Observer.)

I essentially know nothing about the Luftwaffe.  Can anybody provide me information about the 1st Flieger Ergänzung Gruppe (See) such as: where assigned, missions, aircraft...etc. etc...

Then what does the factoid: "BV-138-B1" mean?

Thanks so much in advance for any assistance.

I'll just copy my reply on WAF here for anyone who might be interested...

Here are some details for Flieger Ergänzung Gruppe (See)...

As stated in that link - 1./Fl.Erg.Gr.(See) with Do 18, He 115 and later BV138

I wouldn't be surprised if BV-138-B1 refers to the BV-138 flying boat with the B1 variant entering service in late 1940...
