Wolff's Requiem is a depiction of the final flight of Leutnant Kurt Wolff. Wolff, a member of the famed Jasta 11 and close friend of Manfred von Richthofen, met his death while flying Fokker F.1 102/17 on September 15, 1917. While on patrol that afternoon, Wolff, along with fellow Jasta 11 member Ltn Carl von Schoenebeck, attacked a flight of Sopwith Camels of No. 10 Squadron RNAS. The fight was brief but intense, and the odds quickly turned against the two german pilots. As Wolff singled out a Camel to attack, he was suddenly hit from behind by Flt Lt. Norman MacGregor. MacGregor fired a brief burst, and then immediately had to zoom to avoid colliding with the triplane. MacGregor’s report reads as follows:

“I got into a good position very close on one triplane - within 25 yards - and fired a good burst. I saw my tracers entering his machine. I next saw him going down in a vertical dive, apparently out of control.”
