Photo Albatros D.II

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of an Albatros D.II at:


https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Foto-3-Fl...sAAOSwp7de0352


It has some form of Bavarian emblem forward of the fuselage cross. Has anyone seen this machine before and able to say what the serial of the machine was?


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Albatros D.II

Clint the crest is very similar to the one on Robert Dyke's D.II (LVG) Jasta 16b, the old Kingdom of Bavaria arms; that one had a smaller diamond and plain fuselage cross.

The serials on these darker-varnished machines were often not marked or not clear.

Re: Photo Albatros D.II

Hello Nick,


Thanks. Do you have the serial for Robert Dycke's D.II (LVG) at all?


Edit I've just looked in OTF 26 Vol.2 P.130 and P.134 and seen the photos. The symbol is very similar. But of course no serials. So I would now welcome any information on the serials of Robert Dycke's Albatros D.IIs.



Regards,


Clint
