    That is a very interesting photo! Thanks for showing it. Maybe this badge is something more than "just" a sweetheart??

    Cheers, Ade.
    I was told by the person I bought the pin from that it was called a "Sweeetheart" pin. I have no way of knowing if that is correct. Anyway, it made for a good story. Maybe women gave them to men.

    Hi Ade!
    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.

    Cheers Alois

    What a fascinating & extremely rare photo! Thank you for taking the time to post it here on this forum. I am very surprised no one has commented on his Balloon Korps collar insignia. You just don't see that in period images! Very nice
