Ooops! I don't think v. Raben was ever a member of Jasta 2. I only
brought up Jasta 2 because I have a whole bunch (8 now) 1/285 Dr.1s, and
I wanted to paint them up as planes from a single unit (in this case
Jasta 2 -- or Jasta Boelcke).

To the best of my knowledge, v. Raben was never in Jasta 2, other than
that, I think Matt's info on him is right on.
