This section of the air intelligence organization was apparently responsible for the collection of information on the Luftwaffe, other than hardware (A.I.2(g)) or communication intercepts(?). POW interrogations are possibly best associated with ADI(K)and there are hundreds of interrogation reports with very detailed and interesting information. Possibly less well known is the collection of printed material: i.e. diaries, logbooks,letters, personal identification papers, technical manuals, etc. As the war moved to the continent and large quantities of Luftwaffe documents were captured, many of these were funneled through A.D.I.(K) and distributed to the groups that would use these as input for various intelligence purposes. So, if a Fw 190 were shot down or surrendered, this group would probably have collected and disemminated any material of this nature that happened to be on board. That being said, normally, the records of an aircraft would probably not carry on board maintenance records nor would the pilot normally carry his Flugbuch. However manuals, diaries, etc. were sometimes found either on the a/c or crew members.
