Cloth Version (Stoffausführung) of the Luftwaffe Observer Badge (Beobachterabzeichen). The Observer's badge was was one of the first badges for which 'Reichsmarchall Hermann Göring' gave specifications for. Although these provisions were published on 27 November 1935, the badge was not actually instituted until 26 march 1936. The badge was awarded after completion of two month qualifying service, after five operational flight as observer, or if the recipient was wounded while posted as observer (prior to the completion of the 5 flights). This badge is a nicely machine-embroidered multi-colour cloth example having a black canvas backing. Stunning original coth version of the Observer Badge in very good condition!
