Default Yoke and the Bundle of Arrows

My Name is Luis Perez and I am a professor at the University of Puerto Rico. I am very grateful for all the work you have done in your website. I just want to know if you can direct me further information of this officer:

FALBE, Gerhard. 22.03.43 Obstlt.(z.D.) (RDA 01.08.41), trf from RLM (Gl/E), to Ob.d.L. pool with temporary duty to Luftzeuggruppe 6 (to 25.05.43). 25.05.43 trf to Luftpark 1/VI. 30.06.44 Oberst z.D. (RDA 01.06.44) in Fl.Ers.Btl. V, released from service.

I know he was awarded with the Spanish Goverment in 1941 with the medal "El Orden del Yugo y las Flechas"
FALBE, Gerhard. Commander Decorated by FRANCO with the Medalla de la Orden Imperial del Yugo y las Flechas. (BOE, 30 Septiembre, 1941)

and I have just this biographical information:.

I will really appreciated your help, and if this is beyond your reach and interest I will understand.
