"We thank you, but this diversion is not true. Things never happened thus."

"Oh, but it IS true. Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are
the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."

- Sandman: A Midsummer Night's Dream, by Neil Gaiman


That's nice, but what's missing is the list that shows the unit assignment of the first two code elements (letter + numeral) for bombers, recce and night fighters, because these were fixed. The fighter units had a separate system.

This list here might help, though: http://www.rlm.at/download/codes1e.pdf
