1.824 - QVD Princess Karoline Mathilde "Calma" of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha 1912 1983   Max Schnirring 1895 1944 Max Schnirring was killed in a flying accident. Max Schnirring was an aviator notably a test pilot and set a number of flying world records. On 06 July 1944 during a test flight Max crashed in a field near the town of Parow, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany (normally shown as Stralsund, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany).

An interesting article on Max Schnirring together with a photograph of his gravestone in the cemetery at Parow. The gravestone is showing "verunglückt 6 Juli 1944", verunglückt translates as "had an accident", on this basis I'm assuming the gravestone is showing when Max had his flying accident rather than the date of death.
