    It is the cloth active service version of the Observers badge. Worn on the Fliegerbluse.

    Nice buy! No idea on current values.

    Cheers, Ade.

    What did they get the patch for?

    Well, the title of the badge kind of gives a clue

    Being an Observer as part of an aircrew. (BEOBACHTERABZEICHEN is the correct German name for the badge)

    Introduced on March 26, 1936, for observers, assistant observers, navigators and bombardiers.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I know that, but what were the requirements to get that award? Or is it more of a qualifacation type thing?

    It it not an award, but a qualification badge, like a US or British "wing".

    Cheers, Ade.
