Hi Marco,

You may know this already, but the online search of the German 'Kriegsgräberfürsorge' doesn't add much information:

Walter LUBE (no BOD in the datadase); missing/dead 03.04.1916; rank Leutnant

>> the only 'Walter Lube' for WW1 in the database

Hans ZIEMSSEN (no 'Heinrich' or DOB in the database); missing dead 03.04.1916; rank Leutnant

>> one of only three Ziemssens (with any Christian name) for WW1 in the database

Not much I'm afraid...

They both appear in Casualties of the German Air Service 1914 - 1920 by Franks, Bailey and Duiven London 1999

On p 185 Leutnant Hans Ziemssen Pilot FA 62 Killed Ecoivres

Leutnant Walter Kube Observer FA 62 Killed St Eloi

The places of death cannot both be correct, unless one or other DOW.

On p 86 Kube's place of birth is given as Berlin. On p 170, Ziemssen's place of birth is given as Breslau.

Hope that this helps a bit. Where were the stones located?
