Wilhelm Paul Schreiber
Here is my poor translation of the German text from www.flieger-album.de. To read the full version click here.

It appears that he was a Leutnant that had originally tranfered from an artillery unit to the Air Service and had become an Observer.
Born 21 December 1893 in Bramsche
Feldflieger-Abteilung A 221
Awards: Iron Cross First Class and the Pour le Mérite

He was the son of a pharmicist (or the owner of a pharmacy) and had studied law before the war. When the war broke out he volunteered and was in an artillery unit. Later he transfered to the Air Service where he earned his Iron Cross First Class and Pour le Mérite. He died 29 May 1918 in combat. He was buried in Belgium.
