In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. In this case, I do have more information on the individual, see below.

Photo taken by me, October 2012. Click to enlarge.

Top Inscription: Kara Lidotājs Virsl. (Airforce Lieutenant)

Name: Jūlijs Rimša, born October 25, 1894, died May 17, 1926

Location: Meža kapi, Rīga

It looks like this is another tombstone that was desecrated during the Soviet time and is missing a photograph. For a short biography and photograph, you can go to this website about Latvian aviation (in English).
