    Default Post war replacement Imperial Pilots badge..................

    Gentleman, an Imperial German Army Air service Flugzeugfuhrerabzeichen (Pilots badge) a post war (WW2) replacement veterans badge by St u L.......First authorised for use 27th January 1913, issued badges were thinly stamped, silvered or silver washed, at some time during the Great War only certificates were awarded, the crews having to purchase their own badges ! This may explain the scarcity of the stamped issue badges compared to the private purchase two piece variety..............This badge exhibits great detail in its crisp die stamping (see images) and features St u L's late open hinge block and tapered pin with large "C" catch indicating production after 1968. it is known that St u L made these badge pre WW2 in the thirties and probably during the war......as did a number of other medal makers including Assmann (who as well as Deumer and St u L continued after WW2 to produce a range of both Imperial and 1957 awards/medals) each added their own distinctive features, that we can use today in order to identify the maker. I show the St u L and Assmann "Imperial crowns" St u L opting to use a "pillowed" effect for the inner crown area, Assmann a "beaded" net effect....
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
