    Default Need help on ID for two patches & a shoulderboard

    Hello all

    I just recently received these two patches and the shoulderboard from the son of a US veteran.
    After some research I found the patches both have to do with Glider units although I'm not 100% sure.
    For the shoulderboard I can't really find a match in the millions of shoulderboards I seem to find online so I figured I would post the pictures on here so some of the experts could quickly sort everything out. I did do a quick look on the forum but I'm not enough educated on German WW2 to figure things out

    I think the schulterklappe is Feuerschutzpolizei!.....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The top patch is NSFK-Flying Corps, possibly for the Sport's Shirt...
    The 2nd patch is DLV-German Aviation Sport...
    Shoulderboard is Fire Police/Feuerloesch-Polizei as Gunny mentioned above...
    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks to all for your help. Now to show how little I know about German items; what does NSFK & DLV mean?

    None of us knew any of this stuff when first starting to study so if you don't know just ask!

    The difference between novice and expert is mostly time!

    Both these organisations were precursors / routes to the Luftwaffe in pre-war Nazi Germany and many of the LW top pilots passed through one or both or these organisations. They are both part of LW history. Because of the restrictions of the post WWI Treaty of Versailles they were the clandestine vehicles for the coming of the LW.

    DLV = Deutsche Luft Verein or German Aero Sports Association. Was the earlier and was disolved and replaced by;

    NSFK = Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps or Nation Socialist Flying Corps

    Which was officially a kind of public company but under the control of Goering and his gang. Clever eh?


    If you Google these you will find plenty of info.

    Regards
