Transcription of war diary of K.Gr.z.b.V. 5 from microfilmed handwritten source (T971 Roll 9) and the so called Gruppenchronik (partly hadwritten, mostly machine typed). Gruppenchronik also contains several pilot's reports (also from later period when the Gruppe was renamed I./K.G. 55).

Transcription of war diary of Stab Stuka 2 Immelmann from microfilmed handwritten (awful) source (T971 Roll 4) 6.10.1942 to 3.7.1943. Unfortunately the microfilm in my posession only starts with date 20.4.1943. Not sure if it is only problem with my copy or diary was incompletely microfilmed.

One of the interesting bits in the diary is introduction of tank hunting squadron to St.G. 2 on 17.5.1943 / - throughout this document it is called V.f.P. or Versuchsstaffel für Panzerbekämpfung.
