Hello,

A friend of mine has this painting and we are wondering about the identity of the pilot.

Somebody suggested that he might be Oberleutnant Paul Leim.

I would like to have your opinion please.

Thanks

Demir

Leim never received the saxon orders displayed on this bar. The man on this painting is a saxon citizen.

 

Kind regards

Hi Demir,

why do you think that this guy is a pilot, he is

wearing an imperial german observer badge.

Kind regards

Hi,

I think that this officer is Leutnant d. R Kurt Bauer. The only problem is that I have no idea about its Ottoman medals.

But his face appears on the O'Connor's book about Kingdom of Saxony. And it seems very similar to my opinion.
