Kirschstein(1896-1918) was the son of the Regierungspräsident of Posen.He joined the 3. Pionier-Bataillon as a Kriegsfreiwilliger in 1914.His quick number of victories between March-June 1918 were a record if I'm correct.

Hello,
Please help me with the answer to the question when Hans Kirschstein was promoted to Leutnant Der Reserve? Was he in the rank of Gefreiter, Unteroffizier, Vizefeldwebel and Offizierstellvertreter?

Thanks in advance,
Igor

Hello Andy,
Thank you very much for you informations, but I think that was other Kirschstein. Hans Kirschstein who was 27-victories ace of First World War was born on 1896. He was promoted to Leutnant der Reserve on 1915 (I don't know full date).

Best wishes,
Igor

Thanks a lot, Dave! You have once again helped me to find interesting information!

When Hans Kirschstein was awarded Ritterkreuz des Kgl. Preuss. Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern? On May or June 1918?

Best wishes,
Igor
