Albatros B.II (Early)

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I was wondering, the Wingnut Albatros B.II (Early), the markings that are provided, which of the five aircraft was in combat? Or were they all

Had had the same questions when I started to build mine. It seems to be a difficult question these early Albatrosses B II. I'd say at least some of them were in combat as the instructions say in the field the flying surfaces receeived a mottled camouflage. Training machines never were camouflaged. But that's no certain evidence for sure...
