Thank you guys!

Though I'm commonly known as the "Albatros Man" - how could I seriously reject the wonderful Sopwith Triplane?

1.000 posts more will be quickly done - perhaps you order one from Mr. Sopwith already, so we won't have delays?

Well done Sir! Now then everyone, let's see if we can't run up Olham's bar tab equally high.

Well done Olham.

Can you tell me in "Drum fahr Ich nicht nach Hawaii," is Drum an accepted contraction of darum?

BTW it looks likes the lad had a grand time!!

Yes, it is. When I read the book of Max Immelmann with many of his letters from 1915, I find

that they used to speak a bit different, "old fashioned" compared to today's German.

"Drum und dran" is still said though (Darum und daran = paraphernalia, trappings).

 

These men were from FA8 (Fliegerabteilung 8), and it looks like they had a little party.
