    It is with regret that this post has to be made, but we have found that there are a few members who are actively participating and supporting other online LW research sites with eBay finds and interesting (LW based) comments and information that our membership would very much appreciate seeing. These members are not posting that information here for some reason, but only on their favoured LW sites.

    The LRG staff spend a great deal of their spare time finding interesting eBay auctions and other LW related material which they then share with the greater LRG membership. It is therefore unfair that members should simply use this forum to leech any interesting eBay photos or information without posting the interesting material on LRG that they find in return.

    We are grateful that we have a dedicated and very much appreciated core group of members who share their knowledge, findings and actively participate in a fair manner.

    As for the members who are not getting involved and are for whatever reason withholding the information that they find which could quite easily be posted here for the LRG members to appreciate too. We will be monitoring the situation on an individual basis and if it does not improve we will be removing your accounts without further notice.

    We appreciate that we have a large number of members who do not post very often and may simply feel or believe they have nothing to add. This is not directed at you, but is directed solely at a small group of members who we know could be doing more, but are choosing not to.

    So just play the game. We all do this in our very limited spare time, so it is only fair that any help the members can give is shared too. If you do not get involved, but could, then there is really no benefit to the LRG as a whole to keep your membership active.

    By continuing to use the LRG forum you acknowledge that you have read and agree with the above statement. If you disagree with the above stance please contact the administrator so they can remove your account.

    We will also be deactivating accounts that have had no activity for one year or more.

    The LRG staff.

  • About the Luftwaffe Research Group

    The purpose of this forum is to research and discuss the German air force active under the Nazi regime during the period of the Third Reich’s existence. It is a non-political forum which in no way agrees with or promotes the politics, ideologies, actions, or atrocities perpetrated by the Nazi regime. The discussion is to be limited to the military aspects of the Luftwaffe’s activities, equipment, personnel, tactics and aerial warfare during the period. The display of Nazi related images, emblems, uniforms and symbols such as the Swastika are purely for research and historical accuracy and in no way to be seen as promoting Nazi ideologies or politics.
  • Donations

    This forum is run voluntarily by the LRG staff, but it costs money to pay for the hosting and any updates that are necessary from time to time. If you would like to donate some money to help cover these costs please do so via the donations link in the 'Nav bar'. Any amount however great or small will be very much appreciated.
