I'd like to introduce to you a well documented group of a brave German WWI junior officier and observer in the airforce, veteran of the Middle Eastern front, fighting with the Ottoman allies and later a Staff LW officer on the Russian front.

We begin with his "Geburtsurkunde" (Certificate of Birth).

Oberstleutnant Falke owned for sure different ribbon bars... on this picture he's portrayed with one row ribbon bar.
