Schutzstaffel 21 was established on 5 July 1916 from Sonderstaffel III. Schusta 21 was redesignated Schlactstaffel 21 on 27 March 1918.
The markings data I have meageris as follows: In March Schusta was equipped Han.Cl.II machines with white upper and lower elevators. The aircraft were number 1-6 in white shadowed in black. In July Schlasta 21 was equipped with Halb.Cl.II and Cl.IV aircraft with black whites stripes on the fuselage, white fin, rudder and tailplane. The aircraft numbers were painted in blackat the leading edge of the fin. After the war on of the Halb.Cl.II wwere taken over bythe American Air Service. The fuselage was banded in two colors that APPEAR to be red and yellow, The tailplane is painted in longitudinal stripes on the same colors. The wings were over painted the lighter color(yellow?)The fin and rudder is white with an identical 3 painted on the leading edge. The machine was probably the Staffel Fuhrer's aircraft.
Schlasta 37 was at Anoux A/F in AAC on 26 Sept'18 to the end of the war.
