S. Max Reinhard (observer) Oberleutnant z. S. Hubert Klein (pilot and leader of the unit) Leutnant d. R. M. A. Otto Peters (observer) Leutnant z. S. Heinrich Droege (pilot) Leutnant d. R. M. I. Johannes Arzt (pilot) Kind regards Alex
  3. Congratulation to this nice picture and thanks tah you posted it here. Kind regards Alex
  4. Great Group. The fact that the guy was an Wuertemberger is not a disadvantage and don’t have any negative effects to the price. kind regard Alex
  5. Great group John. I love it. I saw this group on the last Bene Merenti auction. Congratulation to this historical purchase. The most exciting piece out of this group is without any doubt the last words written on a piece of paper moments before he died. At that time all of the crew knew that there will never come back home. But consider that he was awarded the "Verdienstmedaille" (merite medal) on the ribbon of the Karl-Friedrich-Verdienstmedaille not the MKFVM himself. This was the lower grade of merite award for enlisted men and NCO. It is that one not the MKFVM
  6. Two log books of Flugzeugobermatrose Heinrich Bracht. He was sent to the army for pilot training. After successful completion he returned to the navy (I. SFA) for further training. But he died short after on 24th Juli 1917. Kind regards Alex
  7. Körner is mentioned on the Serno reports as leader of FA 1. He took over the command of the unit in summer (Sep./Oct.) 1915. He was recalled to germany at the beginning of 1917 and died on 23 Jan. 1917 while a reconnaissance fllight. Olt. Croneiss follow him as Co of FA 1. Kind regards Alex
  8. Thanks for this great work. Very helpful. Here some improvement suggestions: Over the white ribbon for the life saving medal the english text is incorrect. Should be "Life saving 3rd time" Could you change the colour of the background to be in contrast to the white ribbons. It is hard to differ between Background and ribbon. Kind regards Alex
  9. Time Left: 6 days and 3 hours
