GERMANY – SANKE CARD – VIZEFELDWEBEL SEBASTIAN FESTNER – NR 510
This is Sanke card Nr 510 of Vizefeldwebel Sebastian Festner. Festner was an early pilot to Jasta 11 even before the arrival of Manfred von Richthofen. He had a total of twelve victories. He was killed in action in April 1917.
He is standing in front of his Albatros wearing his flight coat and donning his other flight gear.
The card is in excellent condition and has never been mailed.
Sanke cards grew out of the early medium of postcards and are now an invaluable documentation of German flyers who, for a short time in aviation history, were at the top of their profession.
