  1. Hi, I don´t know if it is still of interest, if so: He was stationed at he Seefliegerhorst (for sea-planes) in Schleswig (city in Schleswig Holstein). They had a Musik-Korps there. In German you can read about the airfield here:
  2. Hi Glenn and all, the studio was listed under this address from 1865-1871 and in 1873. GreyC Hi Glenn and all, the studio was listed under this address from 1865-1871 and in 1873. GreyC
  3. Hi, according to the Ehrenrangliste he was a Hauptmann in the Weimar Republic Reichsheer serving with the 2. Kraftfahr-Abteilung in 1926. GreyC
  4. Hi, post #7 könnte Koch sein. GreyC and I think it reads "Oberst" in #5, not Oberleutnant. GreyC
  5. Hi walfisch, glad the info is helpful. As far as the Ehrenrangliste is concerned, Irminbert is listed as Hauptmann a.D. in 1926, yet there is another vB. listed as Hptm. still active in the Reichswehr who seems to have served in IR 178. I am fairly certain that this was not Irminbert but some relative. GreyC
  6. He was born in Bern, according to the National German Biography. GreyC
  7. Hi arb, this seems to be him, although walfisch has him as FERDINAND Irminbert. Irminbert was severely wounded while with Schützenregiment / FR 108 (Schützenregiment=Füsilierregiment) as stated in the Verlustliste of 7th Oct. 1914 (left arm). So it makes sense that he then applied for the air-service after convalecence as he was probably no longer fit for the trenches. GreyC
  8. Yup, The Ehrenrangliste lists three v. Biedermann´s at the start of the war as members of FR 108 (Saxon): Frh. v. Biedermann (Irminbert) Hptm. a.D. 1926 Frh. v. Biedermann (Kerfrid) Hptm. a.D. 1926 Frh. v. Biedermann (Lothar) OL. a.D. 1926 there was also a Hptm. v. B. listed at IR 178 Frh. v. Biedermann Hptm. who served with 10. IR. during the Weimar Republic, at least in 1926. You might find more infos on "your" guy in: Erich Blohm, Ernst Vogel, Gottfried Saupe: Das Kgl. Sächs. Schützen-Regiment „Prinz Georg“ Nr. 108. (Dresden 1926. Band 31 des sächs. Anteils der Erinnerungsblätter). GreyC
  9. He might be of Saxon origin, as many of his familiy members left traces in Saxon archives. GreyC
  10. Hi Morten, this Flottillen-Name is synonymous with the 2nd U-Flottile. See here: GreyC
  11. Hi, here is a Überweisungsnationale of a member of Sturmbataillon 8. GreyC PS: Überweisungsnationale is something like a copy of the Wehrpaß for the Bezirkskommando that the soldier was registered at after his service.
  12. Hi, the Ehrenrangliste lists both officers as serving in the RFK throughout the war, both starting as Leutnant in 1914. Barchewitz listed as Hptm at end of war. Contrary to your statement, Kaehne is listed as Major a.D., if Kaehne ended the war as you stated as Hauptmann, he must have been listed in early Reichswehr Ranglisten which I do not own as the Ehrenrangliste was published in 1926.

  13. Please keep posting, dear Peter! As we do not yet know why this photo was taken the altitude in which it was taken is not really telling without context. It is just a piece of the puzzle. GreyC
