Hauptmann Erst Schöbitz (30.11.1915 - 12.10.2003) served as a Gebirgsjäger after several years as a Luftwaffe officer flying for Aufklärungsgruppe 12. Quite an unusual, however, very successful career. Schöbitz was awarded the German Cross on 26.11.1943 and the Knight's Cross on 5.9.1944 serving with 11(H)/Aufklärungsgruppe 12.

Please see other lots to Schöbitz in this catalogue. Besides his personal visor cap, we have his photo grouping and field tunic available.
