    Default Interesting Photo Post Card of LUFT Pilot

    This is an interesting Photo Post Card of a Luft Pilot or Pilot Observer, nice shield on the arm and a Combat Clasp..wonder who he is.

    This came with the large group of Luft Photos I bought from a picker, maybe they will find a better home.

    Looks like he's wearing the Narvik shield!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.



    I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...

    A very nice photograph.

    Paul is right; it's definitely the Narvik Shield [Narvikschild].

    Since the eagle is so much darker than the wreath, it is safe to assume that his aviation badge is the Pilots' Badge [Flugzeugführerabzeichen], not the Combined Pilot/Observer Badge [Gemeinsames Flugzeugführer- und Beobachterabzeichen / Luftwaffendoppelabzeichen].

    His flight clasp is the one for bomber- and dive bomber units [Frontflug-Spange für Kampf- und Sturzkampfverbände].

    He has also got the EK II and EK I.

    Rank appears to be Major. (There seems to be one rank "gull" in the wreath on his collar patches, but I can't make it out with certainty. Otherwise, he could be an Oberstleutnant or Oberst.)

    KG-26 perhaps? I used to have a Wehrpass to a pilot in III/KG-26 during that time who was also awarded the Narvikschild.
