Also I'm wondering if the album is definitely FA (A) 287, note the Fliegerabteilung 102 marking on the car.

I would say it is extremely difficult to state specifically to where each aircraft seen (or individual) belongs.

However, I tend to go with the album this time. Whenever a unit is mentioned it is FFA 287. Even below the photo of the car with the FFA 102 label, it says so.

No doubt the owner/collector of the album also exchanged pictures with others, which of course creates a dilemma. The Rumpler C.IV is such a case in point. Sold before on the 'net. Likewise the captured remains of the RAF FE.2b 6346, seen from the rear, has been published before (Cross & Cockade FE.2 book). I have not seen the one from the front though!

All in all a quite nice album.
Thanks for catching it Clint

Cheers
Stig

Re: German Photo Album

Hi Stig,


I think you're probably correct and I may have been too hasty. Certainly, as you state much of the written data supports FA(A) 287b.


I completely agree with you on the photos. As I mentioned earlier the only ones that were completely unfamiliar were those of the Nieuport.My major concern is that of the German aircraft with identifiable serials, all have I believe been seen before, though the quality is generally pretty reasonable here. I guess the album was assembled at the time, but perhaps using post card photos that were more widely spread now than then.A case in point in the Albatros C.I C.523/15 which I'm fairly certain I've posted here before, logically under the thread for that aircraft and I believe the machine was identified as belonging to Artillerie Fliegerschule Ost, while the Fokker E.IV belong to Wilhelm Frankl while with KEK Vaux.I've enjoyed looking through the album, but in retrospect more new stuff would have been nice.


Oh, and one I could use your assistance with. What is the full serial of the Sopwith on its nose, partial serial B*824 ?



Regards,


Clint

Well Clint

I am pretty certain it must B3824 from No 3 Sq which was shot down 20 Nov 1917
Markings fit, pilot POW which also fit, since the damage is not too great.

Pity there is too much glare when the seller scanned the album

Cheers
Stig

Re: German Photo Album

Hello,


Currently on ebay are a collection of 27 photos from a photo album at:

If anyone has a view on what the blurry serial on the Taube shows, I'd be very grateful for a response



Regards,


Clint
