Re: Luftwaffe organisation - WIP

Not yet and if we do a LW campaign it'll be in the campaign room. That's if as it won't be decided until BoS is released.

Sgt Dickie leaves Sutton Bridge #2

Congratulations to Sgt. Dickie for completing his OTU course. Sgt Dickie, attached is your pass for transfer. Outside the wardroom there is a waiting Bentley.
