Lt. Heinrich Albrecht

Imperial German Army 9th Bavarian Infantry Flieger Abteilung 295 b

from:Stamberg, Kingdom of Bavaria

(d.12th Oct 1918)

I am a history buff and recently acquired a Bavarian Observers badge with the following inscription: "Lt. Albrecht, Flg. Abt. 295, 12-10-18".

I have received some information back from a German source indicating that Lt. Heinrich Albrecht, was assigned to the 9th Bavarian Infantry Regiment, "von Ysenberg". He was also connected to the Flyer Dept 295 B(Artillery) as a pilot/observer. He was born 16 July 1898 in Stamberg, Kingdom of Bavaria. He was wounded on 4th October 1918 died of his wounds on the 12th October.
