  1. Hi Gunnar, A few names in this album do appear to be related to FFA 71 - Lt von Mönsch, Uffz Sieberl and Sgt Assmann. I have them as Lt von Münch, Uffz Siebel and a Werkmeister Assmann. Unfortunately I do not have the first names of many personnel in this unit, even the CO (Hptm Petri)...
  2. Hi all, Can anyone identify this man? Thanks, Matt.
  3. Hi Gunnar, I was praying that it wasn't another Maaß! The photo is part of an album being sold on ebay - other personnel are named, some of which will be well-known to you I'm sure. Here is the link:- http://www.ebay.de/itm/371563169911?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Best Regards, Matt.
  4. Hello, I would like to know more about the attached award (I believe it is called the 'Kriegsehrenzeichen in Eisen' from Hesse-Darmstadt). Can someone tell me who was eligible for this decoration / conditions for bestowal / numbers issued? Thanks in advance, Matt.
  5. Hi Gunnar, I have his first name as Wilhelm, and he was from Crefeld (Krefeld). No date of birth I'm afraid.
  6. He is mentioned briefly on page 25 of this article. Maybe the publisher knows more about him? http://drv1890.de/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Web_Jahresbericht_DRV_2014.pdf
  7. Hi Gunnar, He was born on 14.03.1877 in Meiningen, and was promoted to Major on 18.04.1918. Regards, Matt.
  8. If he is wearing the Bavarian observers badge, then he should appear in the book 'Abzeichen und Ehrenpreise der Fliegertruppe 1913 - 1920' by Carsten Baldes. Unfortunately I do not own a copy of the book, but the answer might be in there....
  9. Hi all, Does anyone know which regiment this man was from? I am hoping that the collar of his uniform might hold the clue... He might be a Saxon, but I can't say for sure. Thanks and regards, Matt.
  10. Here is one from FA 4 in 1918. Can anybody read the signature? Thanks
  11. I can't wait, and my scan won't be any better than the image from ebay. So here it is:- Not sure who either of them are - any ideas?
  12. Hi Stogieman, Agreed - I have an interest in WW1 aviation and I really like this medal as well. So to see a pilot and/or observer with this award is an added bonus. I recently purchased a pic from ebay of a Luftwaffe officer wearing the medal, which I hope to post soon. Thanks to everyone who posted their photos
  13. And here is another one that is online - Jakob Ressler:
  14. Hi, Here is another photo which is online. Let's see if I can post it from my office pc:
  15. Let's try attaching an image that I have already posted on here elsewhere...
  16. Very nice photo, and one of the ones that I was trying to post
  17. Hi guys, I'm hoping that this Luftwaffe Oberst will be identifiable via his medal bar. Can anyone confirm what medals he is wearing? There is a reasonable chance that he became a General.... Thanks, Matt.
  18. Hi, These have all been on ebay recently. Thought I'd share before they disappear into the ether...
