LEUTNANT GEORG VON HANTELMANN
George Von Hantelmann was born in Prussia in 1898, and joined the German Army in 1916. He was promoted to LEUTNANT (equivalent to U.S. 2nd Lieutenant) on June 15th 1917, and immediately transferred to the LUFTSTREIKRAFTE, the Germam Air Command and joined JASTA 15. He was only 19 years old at the time, however between then and the close of WW1 on November 11th 1918, he was credited with TWENTY FIVE Aerial Victories. Sadly he was murdered in 1924, at only 26 by a Poacher on his family's Estate.
Very impressive and in great condition to display with its history.
