WW I Luftwaffe ID please?

Post by cassarnold » Thu Jan 13, 2011 7:17 pm

This is a photo of my maternal grandfather (1897-1940) who was in the Lufftwaffe in WWI--rumor has it he flew with Goering, who later advised him to leave the country in the 1930's. My grandfather was also a physician; my mother is now deceased.

Thanks in advance for any ID on the uniform.

The Iron Cross First Class 1914-1918 and the Bavarian Army Air Observer Badge are in the left pocket.
