    Seeking WWI POW information for Gustav Bähre & Heinz von Beaulieu-Marconnay

    Tom Callen Newbie

      I am trying to find a reference for two WWI German pilots who were held at an American POW camp at the very end of the war. The (I assume) two ID numbers in question are "P.W. 10086" and "P.W. 10259." I think they might be POW numbers since this is what seems to make some logical sense as I know that they were both POWs from 1918 to 1919; both were members of the German army air service (Luftstreitkräfte). They were released from captivity in September 1919 and sent back to Germany, and their names are alleged to be Gustav Bähre and Heinz von Beaulieu-Marconnay. I am hoping that it will be in the records of the National Archives, since this is where the records for the American Expeditionary Forces are held; perhaps they are in the Gorrell History?
