It´s about a french biplane that was shot down at the place of the German soldier. In the foreground the observer, the other is the pilot. No place or date given. Albert Hoppenworth was slightly wounded at the beginning of the war and was listed as KIA as late as 1919, so he must have had bad luck and was killed at the end of the war or ied of his wounds later. He came from the region of Hannover.

Thanks Grey. Light wounds that lead to death or just died, very unlucky.
