    I can't find any foreign Air Force or Naval element the Fahnenband of the Federal Republic of Germany was given to.

    There were only german Air Force or Naval elements which received it

    1997: Aufklärungsgeschwader 51 „Immelmann“ in Jagel [reconnaissance squadron]
    1997: Lufttransportgeschwader 61 in Landsberg am Lech [air transport squadron]
    1997: Lufttransportgeschwader 62 in Wunsdorf
    1997: Lufttransportgeschwader 63 in Hohn
    1997: 2. Fregattengeschwader in Wilhelmshaven [frigates squadron]
    1997: 4. Fregattengeschwader in Wilhelmshaven
    1997: Troßgeschwader in Wilhelmshaven [supply squadron???]

    Hi Harti, I did not realise that these steamers were both national (German) and international. Having awarded them to Army units, it seems a bit strange that AF/N units were excluded? I have two of them and was hoping that RAF units received them so I could have added one to my RAF collection. Aw well never mind. I wrote to the Bundeswehr in the Bendler Building a few weeks ago re beret badges and received a very informative response from a Hauptman. What TR gear are you interested in?
    Cheers Michael

    Hi Michael, I'm not sure if AF/N units were excluded...and I guess my list is not complete. There is no Fahnenband awarded in 1992...and your Band has the 1992 on it. So there must be a ceremony in this year

    The main thing I'm collecting are flags...
