100th combat sortie Junkers Ju 88 1./ (F)120

Sekt und Blumenstrauß for this Aufklärungsgruppe Junkers Ju 88 crew on their return to Stavanger, Norway as they celebrate the successful conclusion of the 100th combat sortie flown by 1./(F) 120 according to the inscription on the reverse of one of the images from this nice photo set currently on offer from 'atlasindex' on here 

Type is likely to be a Ju 88 D-2. Note the Staffelabzeichen just forward of the cockpit. It would appear that  these pictures were sent 'home' as Christmas greetings at the turn of the year 1943/44.
