PRUSSIA – SANKE CARD – LEUTNANT WILHELM FRANKL – AVIATION – NR 384.
Wilhelm Frankl (1893-1917) began as a pilot in an observation plane. His first victory came when he used a carbine to shoot down his opponent. He went on to score twenty confirmed victories before falling in April 1917. He received little attention during the 1930’s because he was Jewish. He was often scornfully referred to as the “Jew with the Blue Max.” Frankl is seated in Sanke Card Nr 384. His PLM appears at his throat, and he also wears his 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class and a Prussian Army Pilot Badge. The postcard was mailed via regular post in 1925 and is in excellent condition.
