Question: could these be the same individual? I do not believe the first person was Luftwaffe; at least he appears in no Luftwaffe personnel listings, promotion or decoration lists. Perhaps he was Luftwaffe during World War I but belonged to the Heer during World War II? The second person is definitely Luftwaffe and appears in a number of Luftwaffe documents dated 1943-45. So, do these two just coincidentally have the same name, or is the first the father of the second?
