Default Oberst Thelen Reichsluftfahrtministerium - info needed

Hi to all,

I`d need more infos about

Robert Thelen (air plane constructor in WW1 & test pilot in Berlin)

Since the mid of 1930s a member of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium
in 1944 Oberst (Colonel) - than retired.

Would be nice, to see a good foto with uniform of him and
are there any infos about his decorations/his Luftwaffe career

I am nearly sure, that he got the war merit cross(es), LSC/LSM & may be
some flower medals.

Thanks for help.

Hello !

Just out of curiosity :
In the Larry de Zeng list of Lw officers, there is a Thelen (no forename mentioned) :
Quote:
THELEN, ? . 03.42 Oberstingenieur and Leiter Verbindungsstelle GL Griechenland
(I think GL is for Generalluftzeugmeister ?!)

Is this the same man (at least the rank could match and also he is an Ingenieur) ?

Best regards,

Archi
