Fokker D.II Kest 6? Pilot ID?

Hello,


Currently for sale on ebay at :


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-AK-Flug...IAAOSwQc1doKQR


is a photo of a Fokker D.II 1559/6, if I read the serial correctly.


Looking at the rear of the postcard I believe the unit Kest 6 is mentioned. Where I need help is with the pilots name as I cannot read the script, though safe to say it ends in mann? Can anyone read the name in the top right corner?


Regards,


Clint

Hello Clint,

the name is Dohrmann.
The aircraft belonged to the contract 1500-1579/16, 80 Fokker D II ordered in August 1916 (source Grosz & Koos "Die Fokker-Flugzeugwerke in Deutschland"). The unit Kest 6 = Kampfeinsitzerstaffel 6.

Regards
Leo
