Albatros D.V 2111/17 ‘M’, Martin Mallmann, Jasta 19 ‘Les Tangos’, Western Front, Jan 1918, Shot down by ‘The Grim Reapers’

The French and volunteer American pilots who patrolled the Reims sector of the Western Front during the Great War were only too familiar with the various German fighter squadrons which would enter their airspace, usually in support of the latest land offensive.

In combat with the Spads of Escadrille Spa 94'The Reapers', Mallmann's Albatros D.V 2111/17 was brought down north of Manre-Beine, the victory was jointly credited to Pierre Marinovitch and his squadron mate, American volunteer pilot Austen Ballard Crehore.
