Footnote: Oskar Barth was born on 20 August 1892 in Stuttgart to parents August Barth and Frieda Ernstine Aigeltinger (b. 29 October 1860). He started the First World War with a field artillery regiment and, around 1916, joined the Air Force. Barth trained in Böblingen at Fliegerersatz-Abteilung 10, joining the Fliegerabteuilung 213 (Artillery) at the Front in April 1917. Between July and September, he served with Jagdstaffel (Jasta) 10 in Jagdgeschwader Nr. 1 under the leadership of Manfred von Richthofen (1892-1918). The Royal Prussian Jagdstaffel 10, also known as Jasta 10, was a fighter squadron of the Luftstreitkräfte (the air arm of the Imperial German Army). It is credited with destroying 118 enemy planes and 33 enemy observation balloons.

After the war, Barth worked as an engineer, employed by German Aero Lloyd AG in Berlin, and, later for Lufthansa under Carl August von Gablenz (1893-1942). He also worked for Aksania and Dornier.
