Général d’Armée Aérienne Georges AUBÉ

Post by AJK » 02 Apr 2022 01:34

I am looking to fill in some gaps in the earlier military career of Général d’Armée Aérienne Georges AUBÉ:

1. Can it be confirmed that his date of promotion to Sous-lieutenant as 1 October 1906?

2. I have him as being assigned to the 21st Artillery Regiment between 1908 - 1910. What was his assignment in 1906-1908?

3. Starting in 1910 he was assigned to the 5th Foot Artillery Regiment, still being there in 1915. When was he reassigned to a new posting, and what was it?

4. In 1920 he is shown as being assigned to the Special Aviation Depot No. 1. When did he start this appointment, and when did it end?

5. In 1924 he is shown as serving in the General Staff of the Inspectorate-General of Aviation. When did he start this appointment, and when did it end?

6. In 1931 he was Commandant of Cazaux Training Camp. Did he remain in this posting until his promotion to Général de brigade aérienne in 1934?

Thank you for any help that you can provide.

Regards,

AJK

Hello
quite complicated these aviators
I am looking to fill in some gaps in the earlier military career of Général d’Armée Aérienne Georges AUBÉ:
1. Can it be confirmed that his date of promotion to Sous-lieutenant as 1 October 1906?


at the 35e RA

2. I have him as being assigned to the 21st Artillery Regiment between 1908 - 1910. What was his assignment in 1906-1908?

as Lieutenant 1st October 1908 21e RA, so previously still at the 35e RA

3. Starting in 1910 he was assigned to the 5th Foot Artillery Regiment, still being there in 1915. When was he reassigned to a new posting, and what was it?

...not appearing in this regiment in 1910, first mention at the Annuaire dated 1st january 1912 at 5e RAP

so after during the Great War there is the matter of officers becoming pilots or flying personel being in Aviation units, detached but still appearing on paper in their former Regiments throughout the war, in this case the 5e RAP despite he was commanding an Air unit


we find mentions and rank as
captain 22 february 1915
chief air photographic section of the ? Army already in 1915
commanding the Escadrille C 28 then SOP 28 since 4th july 1917
chef d'escadron à titre temporaire 23th july 1918

others details below for the Great War period
