A First War Period Flying Ace & Pour-le-Merite Recipient 

WWI Leutnant Wintgens Picture Postcard - Black and white, obverse entitled "Unser erfolgreicher Kampf-Flieger Leutnant Wintgens", the Leutnant seated, wearing a Pour le Merite at the neck, a ribbon bar on his left breast, with an Iron Cross 1st Class and Pilot's Badge below, inscribed "391 Postkartenvertrieb W. Sanke BERLIN N. 37. / Nachdruck wird gerichtlich verfolgt." in the lower left corner, reverse with postcard style backer, 86 mm x 137 mm, near mint. Footnote: Kurt Wintgens (born August 1, 1894 in Neustadt, Oberschlesien, died September 25, 1916 in Villers-Carbonnel, France) was a German World War I flying ace. He was the first military fighter pilot to score a victory over an opposing aircraft, while piloting an aircraft armed with a synchronized machine gun. Wintgens was the recipient of the Iron Cross and the Blue Max (Pour le Merite). After downing at least nineteen aircraft (with probables and force-downs, as high as twenty-two) in air combat, Wintgens was killed in action near Villers-Carbonnel, probably by French ace Alfred Heurteaux, for Heuteaux's eighth aerial victory.
