[the above biography is exactly as given by Joaquin Pena/Higinio Angles 1954 and is a complete confusion with the biography of Walter Dahms/Gualterio Armando (Berlin 9.jun.1887-), even though Pena/Angles give a perfect biography of Walter Dahms upto 1931 Paris, from that year they considered Gualterio Armando as another person, which raises the question who was this other Gualterio Armando born 3.sep.1895 in San Salvador : the most likely explanation is that Walter Dahms deliberately gave a wrong birth date and place to Pena/Angles because he detested the Germans and the German system so much and wanted nothing more to do with it (he hated how he was treated in military service, that his divorce was rejected for so long, that he could not get a job in Berlin at the hands of Richard Strauss, etc.)]
