Thank you for the additional information, exactly what i was looking for. I am aafraid i was ignorant of the history behind the German unit so thanks for adding to my knowledge. Slight bit of a mystery still concerns the grave of one of the two German airmen.
Ltn. Hans Ziemssen is straightforward, buried in Ecoivres Military Cemetery near the crash site, in grave French plot 1 Row B Grave 6.
I am nearly 100% sure that his observer Walter Kube is buried next to him in Grave 5 , however the details i have from the CWGC for this grave are H. Kube 23rd Oct 1918. Now maybe i have made a mistake in the recording of the data but surely H Kube must be Walter Kube of 3rd april 1916?
Thanks again nils
The CWGC arent 100% accurate so go with your gut feeling.The wreck caught fire so I D ing the bodies may not have been easy.
