About Greiser I only know that he fought as a pilot during the first world war.

Ábout Dirlewanger I only know he fought during the first world war.

And about Müller I know he fought as a volunteer during the first world war, don't know any units either. But he ended the war being an NCO.

What is "Bayerische" ? Is the rest of the unit meaning "Flying Section A-287"?

Bayern is a part of southern Germany (like Texas in the U.S.). And yes, "Flying Section" is a correct translation..
