Malmann, Emil, Gefreiter – NCO in charge of motor vehicles for Jasta 18. A shady character and associate of Carl Eber.

Acting as Berthold’s Scherge, Eber fought Malmann to force him to curbe some of his activities, which Berthold wanted stopped.

In the process, Eber broke Malmann’s arm. They now work together and appear to be friends, but Eber still watches him closely. The fight took place in August 1917.

Strähle, Paul, Leutnant d R – Closest associate of Carl Eber. Much of the day to day activity during the period from August to December 1917 is based on his war diary.

Strähle left Jasta 18 28 December 1917 to take command of the newly forming Saxon Jagdstaffel 54s.

Turck, Ernst Wilhelm, Oberleutnant – Presently commander of Jasta 18 and Jagdgruppe 7, Spitzname, Vater, (Father). Has a black Newfoundland named Max.

The comet markings on Turck’s aircraft are new. He took Harald Auffarth’s Alabtros after he left the Staffel. His original marking was the black and white, ‘Eiserne Kreuz’ ribbon.

Smokes disgusting French, clove scented cigarettes when he can get them. Carl keeps him supplied.


Ulrich - Jasta Eighteen's clerk.

Veltjens, Josef, Leutnant d R – Spitzname, Seppl. The photo of Veltjens shows him in his signature tiger fur lined flying coat.

A Rhinelander, very outgoing and well liked. Protégé of Rudolf Berthold.

He has an Alsatian named Bella.


He will eventually achieve 35 confirmed victories and lead Jasta 15.

After the war, he joined an armored detachment of Freikorps Gerstenberg, part of the Lüttwitz Freikorps formed in Berlin. This Freikorps was sent to northwest Germany to seize the port cities from the revolutionaries. He sustained three wounds in the recapture of Bremen.


Sepple and Sepp are short names for Josef.

Viebig, Hans, Leutnant d R,


[Linked Image]

CAPTION – This six pointed star is an authentic Jasta 18 marking from this time, however, the pilot who used it is unknown. Viebig’s markings for this period are unknown. I used this marking for him in my Mods and in this story it has no known historical connection to him.

CAPTION: Left to right, Viebig, Schafer, Veltjens, Strahle and Kleffel.







Villinger, Hans, Leutnant d R, assigned 12 November 1917, KIA 1530 hours near Le Mesnil-en-Vespres.

Voss, Werner, Leutnant d R – Well known Grosskannon, now deceased. A former acting commander of Jasta 14, to which Carl Eber and a number of other members of Jasta 18 previously belonged.

Spitzname; Bubi.

KIA 23 Sep 1917. The fictionalized account of his last combat and Carl Eber's part in it can be found in thread 14, post 58.

The screenshot is one I made based on photographs of him with the Fokker Triplane in which he was killed. In the story I gave the Triplane the fictitious name ‘Baby.”
