Thanks for help,
You are right it could be Gotha WD 11.
I also have a problem with this one:
Image
Definately it is not a German flying boat. For me it looks like it is a French o Britisch flaying boat.
In the album this photo is described as a French flying boat "Courtigsa" (original text)
I suppose it means a Curtiss Flaying Boat but I'm not sure if French army had this type of boats?

Hi,

this a Fench FBA 150 HP from Centre d'Aviation Maritime at Dunkerque

Probably D12 captured on 15/5/1917 and brought in at Zeebrugge

Maybe you are right Cnock,
Maybe it is not a Bernhard von Tschirschky und Boegendorff. I have an album with 72 photos of the Hydro-Airplane Station in Zeebrugge. Some of them are described (but in polish) so at the moment I'm trying solve the problem who is who. There are deffinately names of Tschirschky und Boegendorff and Lieutenant Christiansen and flying boats captured by him.

There are Erich Kästner and Karl Meyer these two German pilots shot down Britisch airship C 17. Theirs action present photo in the middle - C 17 attacked by two seaplens.

Sorry for confusing with Bernhard von Tschirschky und Boegendorff - person from the previus photo is Erich Kästner.

Hi,

foto of Karl Meyer is most probably taken on the SS Brussels, a prized ship brought to Zeebrugge, and used as sleeping accomodation for the pilots of Seeflugstation Zeebrugge
