Luftschutz badge, maybe civilian volunteer.

Article about: This is my most recent purchase, sold to me as a German Air Defense Lapel badge. My question is; who wore this badge? My guess is that it wasn't a member of the uniformed services, but proba

    Default Luftschutz badge, maybe civilian volunteer.

    This is my most recent purchase, sold to me as a German Air Defense Lapel badge.

    My question is; who wore this badge? My guess is that it wasn't a member of the uniformed services, but probably a civilian Luftschutz volunteer. I suppose that it was worn on the lapel of a suit or jacket. I have not seen any like it on the web, though the design is similar to the swastika / wings designs on Luftschutz helmets. It is silver washed and measures 25mm from wing tip to wing tip. There are no markings on the badge.

    Thanks for any help / info on this nice little item.

    I cannot comment on originality, but this is the 1938-pattern Zivilabzeichen [= Badge for wear on civilian clothing] for the Luftwaffe's civilian employees and workers. (Prior to that, a different pattern was worn.)
