Thank for opinion.
I think Schnellman is correct . Grandpa served as "unfliegende persone" in KuK flaying corps in aircraft factory in Wiener Neustadt as a taylor.As he told they produced diferent kind of plains ,he remindes Albatroses and Gothas.
We never talked about this badge I always thot it is a so called patriotic pin.
Some very thought-provoking items and comments about the Taube, and related items. Thanks all for adding to the thread.
Matilda, thank you for posting that wonderful photograph, it is the first I have seen with the pin in wear.
