Thanks, Gunnar. I found him in the Ehren-Rangliste
as a member of Bogohl 2, killed on 12.3.18 at Chateau Thierry.
The Ehrenmal des preussischen Offizier-Corps
(1939) also lists him as "Rittmeister a.D." but does not clarify his re-activated status, as the Ehren-Rangliste
Alas, no mention of him in Zickerick's list in Unsere Luftstreitkraefte
, so no first name, date and place of birth.
But Haehnel's Ehrentafel
lists Scheibler as "Lt.d.L." and buried in Chateau Thierry. Hmmmm . . . You might think such an old soldier's body would be sent home (wherever his was). Oops! He was in captivity, so no ticket home.
Unless there is some kind of research break-through, I think Rittmeister a.D. Scheibler of Bogohl 2 will remain another mystery for us.
