GERMAN REPRODUCTIONS






LUFTWAFFE BADGES

Like their American counterparts, German aircrew badges were qualification badges granted for two months flying service or five operational flights in a capacity which did not require combat service. All pilots received the Pilotís Badge upon completion of training, showing a black eagle on a silver wreath. The Observer's Badge was similar in appearance, but with a hovering eagle with curved wings; it was awarded to non-pilots for operational flights. The combined Pilot and Observerís Badge was in effect a senior pilotís badge, being of the same design as the pilotís, but with a silver eagle on a gold wreath. The Pilot/Observers badge with diamonds was created in 1935 by Goering and was intended to be awarded only in special recognition to members of the Luftwaffe and qualifying foreigners. The Parachutistís Badge was awarded to parachute qualified personnel.

When the war started, the Luftwaffe began to award combat badges. The Flak Gunnerís Badge was awarded to anti-aircraft units, and until April 1942 was awarded to 88mm anti-tank artillery and other gun crews for ground action as well. The Luftwaffe Ground Assault, Close Combat Clasp and Panzer Assault badges were equivalent to their army counterparts, for awards to the elite Hermann GŲring Division, paratroops, and other Luftwaffe ground combat formations.

LUFTWAFFE INSIGNIA

  The term "bullion" describes embroidery done with gold or silver wire. It is usually embellished with several different textures of wire to create different reflections. Because the work is done by hand it is quite expensive, but the rich visual effect of fine bullion embroidery has always been worth the extra cost.

LUFTWAFFE OFFICERS

The Luftwaffe being a new branch of service created new designs for their insignia. General officerís insignia was gold on white. Lower ranking officers all had silver embroidery on a background indicating their branch of service. Flying officers (pilots and flight crews) and paratroops both have yellow backing. These collar tabs are hand embroidered in aluminum silver wire on yellow wool backing for flight personnel.

MILITARY IDENTITY BOOKS

The Germans were famous for their meticulous record keeping, and nowhere was this better exemplified that in the soldbuch (pay book) that was carried by each member of the armed forces. It contained not only the necessary personal information ó photograph, date and place of birth, parents, etc. ó but also detailed records of the manís promotions, payment, clothing issue, and weapons for which he was responsible. This was the soldierís most important personal document, and  pity the poor landser who accidentally lost his! Needless to say, captured soldbuchs were a useful source of information for Allied intelligence.

These reproductions are taken from original documents, and are correct right down to the color of the cardboard covers and bindings. They are ideally suited to the requirements of the collector or re-enactor.
