    Default Unknown Luftwaffe(?) insignia

    Well, Iíve got this unknown insignia, which I guess belongs to some sort of German ground crew, possibly from the eastern front.
    Iím really would like to know which unit is belonged to. I guess itís a sleeve patch of some sort.

    I don't think this is German at all, never seen one before.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    Not WW2 German to the very best of my knowledge.

    Clearly it does appear to be mechanic related, but what nationality and time frame I do not know.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Wellí Iíve got it from Russia, from a friend whoís into WW2 restoration/memorabilia, along with other bunch of things (rusty toy soldiers, lion decoration taken from unknown origin etc.). As a former helicopter electrician myself, the origin of this piece really important to me. Iím not an expert myself, but it doesnít look Soviet for that matter. Could it be eastern European? Too bad thereís no date or text on it.

    I think East German might be a better bet.

    Quickly enough I found that sleeve patch, which resembles the one I have.

    The one in the link is East German, but the first one posted does not look the same. The top part of the insignia resembles the Chinese archways of old??

    I agree, there seems to be 3 oriental symbols on the badge

    It is East German as well, from the series of Dienstlaufbahnabzeichen (Occupational Specialty Badges) used from the mid-sixties on. This one is for Fliegertechnische Versorgung [Aviation-Technical Supply].
