What size is the disk. If Kriegsmarine should be smaller than the army or Air Force issued.
The perforations are not the same as a Kriegsmarine. I have never seen a red tag before, so this is a new one for me.
You sure the disk is plastic?
Best of luck.
Hi, I'm pretty sure that is plastic, I finally spoke with my friend Hans and said he should, rather, be a LW flying over the sea, such as France - Britain, the Kriegsmarine's not it's a mistake on my part, the size of the classical German ID mark
Looks like it might be bakelite!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Der see adlers or sea eagles was what they were called.
Beginning of WW2 the Kriegsmarine had a small naval airforce called the see-luftstreitkrafte.
Here is a good article
If this turns out real, you have a rare piece. Hope it works out in your favour.
Is the back also red, and what is the actual size measurement of the disk?
70 by 50 mm should be about right.
Holes about 4 mm.
Here is what I come up with after a bit of research:
Nummer 51224 « 51225 » 51226
Feldpoststempel 1939-1945: 51225 (FELDPOSTMARKEN)
Verwender: Postamt | Verwendung als: Aufgabestempel, Tagesstempel 1.5.1942-19.10.1942 Stab II Einsatz-Flieger-Regiment 63, 24.1.1944 Stab Il Flieger-Regiment 63, 28.11.1944 nicht verwendet.
Typ: K1 (Einkreis Rundstempel) / Form: Kreisstempel
Verwendungszeit: 1.5.1942 bis 21.5.1945
Good find if you can verify the bakelite orange
Thank Eike41 yes it's Bakelite orange, approximately the same info we gave one man here in our republic, but it is rarely seen thing and people did not know much. He also wrote to us that it is a 63 Flieger Regiment stationed in France
Unfortunately I am probably not correct in my above post as I have posted a FELDPOSTMARKEN not a MOB number and the MOB is what is stamped on that disk.
I will see if I can track it down.
Someone smarter than I told me this was the MOB code for:
Kurier Staffel Geschwader 1 or 26./ Flieger-Verb.- Geschwader 2
Variation on a theme, field made replacement in bakelite - so would be basically fire proof to conform with OKL guidelines on aircrew worn ID tags. Nice find!
