    I have the following engraved on a badge....

    Schmalschläger s.l Hörmann z. Erg. an den verhängnisvollen Flug 16 x 16

    My poor translation indicates it is to remember some sort of fateful flight. What is the s.l and z. Erg stand for?

    I have found 2 Schmalschläger and 2 Hörmann but can not link the 2 (if in fact I have the correct people)

    Thanks in advance.

    this information is from the Bavarian casualty list  #315   dated 10. November 1916

     Flieger Abteilung 2

     Oblt. (5. Chev. Regts.) Benedikt Schmalschläger – München  - leicht verwundet

     Ltn. d.R. d. Fliegertr. Ludwig Hörmann – München – schw. verw.

     I think it is safe to say these are the individuals on your badge- given by Schmalschläger to Hörmann

    No doubt there is more information on both on ancestry.com in the Bavarian Stammlisten
