    what a fabulous looking badge , i don`t think it`s patriotic , and as you say looks to be of a pilot . I notice the collar tabs show a balloon so perhaps he was a balloon pilot ?

    Matilda....a great looking badge,....have a look at this site, Austro-Hungarian Land Forces 1848-1918 I really cant help, never seen it before, but the photographic evidence shows it both to exist and be possibly, an official badge, however it does not conform to the "standard" Austro-Hungarian Pilots badge.....let us know if/when you find out.
    Prost ! Steve.
