Personnel Movements: Personnel movements were observed at the following airfields: a. Doeberitz: Approximately 500 men left the Air Technical School in groups of 20 to 30 between 22 and 26 October. Most of these men, it was learned.. had been transferred to other units while some had been sent to the USSR. Some of the newly arrived recruits which had been stationed in a hangar were moved to the vacated billets in the Richthofen Kaserne. b. Finow: Approximately 90 soldiers departed from the airfield on 17 and 18 October. The fifty recruits which arrived on these two days were issued black-bordered blue shoulderboards in place of the black-bordered crimson shoulderboards which they had been wearing on their arrival. c. Briesen: Twenty soldiers departed on 20 October. d. Oranienburg: Approximately 150 men wearing black-bordered blue shoulder- boards arrived on 18 October. e. Welzow: On 26 October, a 90-axle, 950 ton train moved from Welzow to Brest Litovsk.3- 5. Fu-1Shipments to Oranienb_,g Airfield: 6 October: 22 tank cars from Boehlen 10 October: 12 tank cars from Ruhland 13 October: 13 tank cars from Ruhland 18 October: 20 tank cars from Ruhland 21 October: 10 tank cars from Ruhland. 1. The aircraft of the special unit of the Werneuchen Bomber Division pre- sumably returned to Welzow where they had been stationed prior to mid-July 1955. 2. It is believed that the airfield is now occupied by two ground attack regiments. The second unit is probably identical with the regiment which had been stationed at Doeberitz prior to late September. Both regiments had been temporarily stationed at Erfurt-Bindersleben during the fall maneuvers of the Eighth Guards Army. 3. Three trains from Gross Doelln and seven from Weizow had previously gone to Brest Litovsk. The shipment of 26 October indicates the completion of the retransfer of the unidentified bomber unit which had arrived in Welzow from the East in mid-July.
