Thanks Rick and Rammjäger
It fits very good (at least in my records) that Joachim Friedberg took over the command of FFA 64 (later FA 32) in Dec 1916, as I have that Hptm Walter Pohl (their original commander left around this date).
Friedberg must have left the command of FA 32 before Jun 1918 as I have that Hptm Johannes? Gerner at commander at that date...
Does anyone knew when Gerner took over the command of FA 32...?
The story about the Marine flyer (Plambeck) who was left behind at Grossenhain when all others of FMF left is a good story and actually there is a little chance that it could be a true story...
This is the information I have about Heinrich Plambeck
Born 14 Jul 91 in x. In Jan 1915 he joined FEA x
, unfortunate no number given...
but perhaps it could be FEA 6...?
In Aug 1915 he joined FFA x
, also here the unit is unknown...
In Dec 1915 he "went" to hospital...
Then in Apr 1916 he joined FEA 6
where he stayed until Jul 1916, could this be the time when he was commander of the Flieger Schule Condor...?
In Jul 1916 he joined the Marineflugzeugabnahmekommission
where he stayed until Oct 1916 when he was posted to MLFA
(this is the same unit as FMF after the renaming in autumn of 1915).
On 10 Nov 16 Lt dR MA *
Plambeck was posted to SFS Putzig
where he served within the Fokker Schule
On 13 Nov 16 he received the Landfliegerabzeichen.
On 24 Apr 1917 Plambeck was posted further as leader of a Flieger Schule
(within MLFA) and on 17 Jun 17 he was promoted further to Oblt dR MA.
He stayed at J-thal until 22 Jun 18 when he was posted to the stab
of the Marineflugchef
. However he was posted back to MLFA
on 15 Oct 18 where he probably stayed until EOW...
*there is a possibility that Plambeck was an Army flyer in the period 1915 to late 1916 and that when he joined the Marine Air Force he "got" an Marine rank. However very few of the many Army flyers who served within the Marine Air Force actually was converted to Marine ranks...
