Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Also known as Hellmuth Hirth in this wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellmuth_Hirth , Hirth (1886-1938) was a famous airplane designer and flyer.  This postcard shows him with his Iron Cross presumably during WWI.  He was killed in a plane crash in 1938.

Ha, ha!

You know it's one reason I share them here--digitization allows access to the image without having to actually be holding the piece of paper.
One draw back is that digitizing may miss something. I may be sharing what you all can't come and actually touch and feel but I'm filtering my collection through my choice of interests or what I think others may find interesting.  Who knows what I'm overlooking and failing to scan and post here?!?
Slowly but surely I'm getting more and more items scanned and posted.
