A new first name, and one to add to my list of flyers! Lt dR Fritz Rehorn. From the Solinger Zeitung 31st Aug 1918. Probably the Lt dR Rehhorn mentioned in the MWB dated 19th Oct 1918.

Not sure what this is: Oberzollkontrolleur Wölle? We have a H dL aD Wölle in the list, yes. 

Or is that a mistake, should it read "without swords" rather? 

From Münsterischer Anzeiger, 2.11.1918

This might be a new one: Lt dR Stumpf from Bentheim

From Münsterischer Anzeiger, 5.11.1918


Just a thought: Any chance that this is the later Flak Oberst Paul Stumpf (born 1893)?
In the 1914 RL, there is a Lt dR Stumpf in FAR 25.

Another submitted one, Lt dR Walter Gumprich, but I understand they (almost?) never really received it (?).

(Btw, seems to be a Jewish family.)

You are very likely correct on his religious background - the Yad Vashem Shoah victims database lists quite a number of Gumprichs and several of them from Münster.

There is just one possible Heinemann,

no first name, no unit

Reserve Captain


HOH3X published in the Staatsanzeiger 27.07.18 / Milit?rwochenblatt 24.08.18


Might that be the right one?

What do You know about him?

Maybe a pic?


Best regards

This might also be a new one: Lt W. Heck from Groß Czyste. 

From Die Presse, 3.7.1918 


Is it the same Heck??


Award date of 4th September 1918 does not match with the date of "Die Presse, 3.7.1918"


Kind regards

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
