What did the doormen say when they were about to jump? For example, in BoB they say 'Stand up!' 'Hook up!', but would it have been same for the Fallschimjägers? It's for and English assignment and I'm a bit of an accuracy freak ;)

I've got another question, one source says they jumped in sticks of 8, another says 12? Which is right?

From what i've read the Ju52 carried a average of 12 Fallschirmjagers. A klaxon/horn warned them that they were to jump. Just before the jump they were told to fasten their helmet straps, check equipment. When the horn sounded, they jumped. DFS230 gliders held 8 men.

Regards,

Gary.
