Germany, Imperial. A Lot Of Six First War Photos And Postcards

The photos and postcards include: two studio portraits of a Bavarian pilot with dedication; a French and German plane in combat; a Feldpost card of a Bavarian pilot unit; two photos of the lying in state of Immelmann.

The two studio portraits show Bavarian pilot Joseph Dietz, one in flight suit with helmet, the other in uniform. On the latter, he wears the Iron Cross 1st Class, a Bavarian Pilot Badge, and a Wound Badge in Black, as well as a medal bar with three medals, one being the Iron Cross 2nd Class. On the reverse of the first card, he wrote “Dedicated as a keepsake by Seppi Dietz, Pilot School Schleißheim 1916. From the cradle to the grave, those are the best years of life.” On the reverse of the second card, he wrote “In memory of the campaign 1914-18 by Joseph Dietz, Vice Sergeant pilot, Bavarian Pilot Battalion 289.” The photo was taken in Passau.

The photo showing two planes in midair has a handwritten note on the reverse, stating that the photos in question are a German and a French plane during battle.

The Feldpost card is a propaganda postcard of the Bavarian Schutzstaffel (protection squadron) 28. The obverse shows the Prussian eagle carrying the dead French rooster in its talons, with German fighter planes flying in the background. The card was sent by August Zirngibl (rank illegible) of the Bavarian Schlachtstaffel (battle squadron) 28 to his brother, NCO Karl Zirngibl in Passau. It is dated to August 4, 1918. The last two pictures show the lying in state of German ace and pilot legend Max Immelmann (1890–1916). Measuring between 119x89mm and 150x101mm, fine to very fine condition with varying levels of scuffing and fraying.
