    I think it is the same as this eagle, which is a Deutsche Bahn adler.

    In short:
    it's a state eagle and used by Deutsche Reichspost, but also for forestry (Gemeindeforstbeamte and Reichsnährstand)
    and for a short period of time customs (Zollbeamte), when it was replaced by a new pattern. Dt. Reichsbahn did wear this eagle
    in golden color. Their drivers had the alu type of eagle.

    The HY did wear also the SA type of eagle, but the stand for the head is then the other way around.

    Were these also used by the Luftwaffe civilian employees, like fire brigades etc.?

    You can see them for example being worn by members of a Fliegerhorstfeuerwehr
    and doormen and elevator operators for Luftwaffe buildings.
