Good morning Gentlemen,

first of all this thread is not about overclaiming but about different official scores. The 1919 issue of the journal Flugsport includes a list of the German WW1 aces:
https://www.pennula.de/luftfahrt-ges...19-heft-04.htm
Of the twelve aces with 30-34 kills two are indicated with scores that are lower than the scores commonly seen today, including the scores in the profiles of the theaerodrome website. A further two aces are not listed:Any ideas or opinions?

Michael

The WW2 personal file of Theodor Osterkamp provided by the Bundesarchiv doesn't seem to include his score. I'm am looking forward the the next BLUE MAX AIRMEN volume which likely includes Osterkamp. Does anybody know when it will be released ?

The German WW1 Navy aces doesn't seem to be included in the list of the 1919 issue of the journal Flugsport. Does another comparable list include them ?
