Today i want to present a small and rare group of an navy enlisted man who served in the Marine-Luftschiffer-Abteilung.
Johann Holz was born on 17.03.1889 at Frankenthal (Bavaria).
At the age of 20 he entered the navy on 06.10.1909 at 3.Kp. II. Matrosendivision. The most time of his duty he served on board of SMS Schlesien until 27.09.1911 when he leaved the navy as an Obermatrose der Res.
At the AOW he was reactivated and from 05.08.1914 - 20.03.1915 on board of SMS Wörth.
On 31.03.1915 he moved to the Marine-Luftschiff-Abteilung.
At first for half a year to Marine-Luftschiff-Detachement (MLD) IV at Hage.
Maybe he was trained here for further assignment.
