Hi everyone,

 

Anyone able to shed light on the identity of this, quite highly decorated Saxon pilot? A leading Saxon aviation historian was unable to do so, but I have still not quite given up - I am sure I have seen his face before somewhere. 

 

Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt! 

 

Thanks a lot

Hi,

 

It seems that this officer is Hans Schneider from Artillerie Flieger Abteilung 238

For me the ribbon bar has the following ribbons :

SH3, knight cross of St Henry of Saxe

SA3aX, knight cross 1st class with X of Albert of Saxe

SA3bX, knight cross 2nd class with X of Albert of Saxe

EK2, iron cross 2nd class

PKO4, Order 4th class of the Crown of Prussia

ÖM3K, Austrian Military Merit 3rd class with war decoration

 

On the tunic he wore two more ribbon, one ribbon for the iron cross 2nd class and for me the ribbon of the knight cross with X of House Order of Hohenzollern.
