He has won the KC with X of the War Merit cross and was a Lw. member during WWII. So most probably also WWI aerial service.

Thank you very much :cheers: => you confirmed it already perfectly, he is not the searched Lt. Plagemann.

Cordial greetings,

Now this is a very interesting man... I bet that he knew more detailed secrets than some of the battlefield Generals. The military would not function without the officials!!
