Re: Photo Junkers J.I

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a line up of Junkers J.I. Nearest the camera J.857/17 and next back J.815/17 I think at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Feldflu...QAAOSweFhevTkL


J.857/17 is known to have served with FA (A) 263, so perhaps that is the unit depicted.


I'd also welcome other views on whether I've read the serials correctly, since upon checking I've already seen this photo which was either captioned J.867/17 and J.818/17 or that's how I read it at the time.




Regards,


Clint

We both know by now that few photos sold on e-bay comes out crystal clear (unfortunately).

For what it's worth I also read these two numbers as 857/17 and 815/17.
Especially the aircraft nearest to the photographer is difficulty to interpret as anything else. The second one is more tricky, even if I don't want to risk my neck for it, I would say 815 is pretty certain. The /17 is not visible at all as far as I can judge, but since no /18 fits, my bet is still on 815/17

Cheers
Stig
