Marwede's final victory and capture on 3 October 1918
(US Army Signal Corps)
 
After serving with Kest 2, Marwede joined Jasta 67 in 1918 and was credited with shooting down a D.H.9 and four balloons. On 3 October 1918, he flamed an American balloon southwest of Montfaucon only to be shot down by anti-aircraft fire. Marwede was captured and so was the entire event. On hand to record it all on film was an American cameraman.
