Hello!

Never heard such a name... but it seems so. I also read Metgengerder.

Here is a photo of that unit. Note the arm patch "FL67"!

Hi guys,

Thanks for your efforts. I thought it might have been Metzengerder or Metzengerdes. So very similar to your interpretations. :)

Hi all,

I have just found a Lt dR Friedrich-August Metjengerdes, born 20.3.1884 in Waddewarden, Jever. He is listed as being wounded in early 1917 according to the Verlulisten. Probably the same man? Thanks guys - and thanks for sharing your terrific photo!

Hi Mattyboy!

I agree! The Verlustliste says: "Durch Absturz schwer verletzt" (Seriously injured by crash). So he was an aviator!

Mattyboy,

I believe that is Bernhard Graf.  He was born 18.04.1899 and attended the bayer. Flieger-Schule 5 (Gersthofen) from 1917-1918.

Matt,

that may well be Hauptmann Erich Poser. I have a note with him at FAA 212.

Hi Glenn,
Thanks a lot. His (Erich Poser's) medals and some paper documents were sold a while ago - unfortunately the seller only showed part of his Kriegsstammrolle. It didn't show his WW1 postings and although the auction house contacted the buyer on my behalf, I never received any reply sadly....

Hi Chris!

Jakob Osberger, born 21.10.1875 in Regensburg. Looks like two Kriegsstammrolle entries on Ancestry.

What a wonderful photo, Chris!

Could you please show a close-up of the helmet, the upper cross and the shoulder-straps?

Thanks a lot!
