German airman in Palestine


Recommended Posts



Do you have any details on the death of this German airman?


Boxhammer Alexander (died 9-4-18) commemoration at Tarabya Istanbul 


Was he shot down or died from some illness


And what Jasta did he serve with?

I couldn´t find him in any lists. Probably he was bavarian (the name sounds bavarian).

Maybe someone who has ancestry-access could check. All bavarian personal-lists of bavarian soldiers are available.

Possibly died at the training school at San Stefano. either accident or illness


That list of grave throws up a number of airman lost in the Ottoman empire?


This man died around the same date as Boxhammer
