Hi Matt

From the first list of photos nr 2 should be Hptm Funck, nr 3 Protzen von Schramm. I am uncertain regarding nr 6.

Dear all,

Can anyone help with the second group of photos?

I think that the last name (Kommandeur der Flieger 2) is Seraphim, but what about the others?

And who's signature is against photo number 6 from the first grouping?

Thanks a lot,

Matt.

Hi Matt

Signature nr 12 should be Hptm Holdermann.

The signature from FA 11 is hard to read(for me).

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the information. That is a super photo!

I searched for more details about the career of August Dittmar, however I couldn't find anything...

Do you happen to have any knowledge of his wartime postings / promotions?

Happy new year!

Matt.

Hello again,

I have another signature which I would like identified, if someone would be so kind.

It is of a Hauptmann and Stabsoffizier der Flieger in 1915.

Thanks and regards,

Matt.

Thanks a lot,

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts...

    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase.
