An ultra-rare (and complete) radio recording of "Luftbaubataillon-Marsch" can be heard here (skip to 20:30).

I haven't found any info on this piece. Has anyone heard (or heard of) this composition before? An intro motif from Buder's "Flieger empor!" is noticeable right at the beginning. What I find strange is that the term "Luftbaubataillon" wasn't really used, "Luftwaffen-Bau-Bataillon" was used. So I don't know whether the title is correct; but I assume it should be, since it likely originates from an original radio list (the other titles the archive listed for this broadcast are correct).

Any info on this piece is most welcome.
