In the year 2013 we have any anniversaries. 200 years iron cross is one of this.

Less known is the 100 anniversary of the foudation of the first navy unit.

All starts with the "Allerhöchste Kabinettsordre" from 3rd May 1913. Where the german emperor order the creation of two units:

1. Marine-Luftschiffabteilung located at Johannesthal / Berlin

2. Marine-Fliegerabteilung located at Puzig near Danzig.

I ask you all to post everything related to the german navy aviation from 1913 to 1920.

Everything like badges, documents, paper, medal / ribbon bars, uniform and parts of this.

Kind regards

Alex

I start this thread with a picture of an early navy airplane. It is a Taube in the navy version. This picture was taken 1913 at Puzig and show the later Oberflugmeister Erich Kästner (on the top of the a/c).

Come on guys help me to keep this thread alive. Look on your collection, i`'m sure you have something related to the german naval aviation, maybe a picture, a paper, document or something else.

Kind regards

Alex

Ha ha.... Alex... you old optimist!

I WISH I had a fundus of German Naval aviation... methinks it is one of those areas where you seldom have something just laying about ;-)

But I do like the badges you have posted!!

Hey...look what I found just laying about! (Sorry Chris -I couldn't resist)

This is a photo of Naval Lieutenant Gunter G. Plüschow in his Heinkel HD-24.

The "TSINGTAU" on the fuselage is a nod to his time as a lone German aviator at the Siege of Tsingtau.

This photo is from after the war when he was working in South America.

I don't think it is a question of members being interested in German Naval Aviation. I think it is more a question of artifacts from German Naval Aviation are so very rare. I wish I had something to contribute.

Jaba1914, the badges you posted are beautiful and they are my favorite German flight badge. I expecially like the Naval Observe badge with the large eagle on it. Would you post a picture of one?

Thanks for starting this thread.

Thank for your contribution, Fergus.

Vary nice piece of history.

L 30 was from 03.05.17 -17.11.17 at the Seerappen airship base. Wich is close to Königsberg were the army observer school was located.

Maybe the navy officers come over to the army guys for spending some time together, share experiences and drink some beer :-)

On one of this occasion or at the end of a courses they brought this gift.


Regards

Alex

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
