World War One: Fokker Dr.1 Triplane Richard Wenzl

Wenzl's first two victories were in April and May 1917 while he flew with Jasta 31, but he did not have another victory (an SE5a) until 16th May 1918. Some attribute this victory to Jasta 11, while others note it was scored after Wenzl had transferred to Jasta 6.

Richard Wenzl

Rank:

Leutnant

Victories:

12 (incl one balloon)

Died:

13 Feb 1957
 

LvRWenzl was a good friend of Jasta 6 Commanding Officer Johann Janzen, and by personal request he was transferred to this unit on the 15th May 1918. Wenzl seems to have had personal troubles with the current Commanding Officer of Jagdgeschwader 1 Wilhelm Reinhardt, who often flew with Jasta 11.

Despite having transferred to a new unit, over the next few weeks Wenzl continued to live with his comrade Werner Steinhäuser of Jasta 11.

For a short period from 11 August - 1 Sept 1918 Wenzl was the Commanding Officer of Jasta 6.
