    Hello,
    The top badge is an Observers badge and it is of Assmann design, however the badge you posted does not have the correct hinge, catch and rivets. The other badge is for Army Balloon Observers, there is even doubt that these badges were even made. The badge you have is not even close to those badges that were purported to be originals.

    Below is my Asssmann Observers badge for comparison.

    Hi, as ever Jody is spot on. I am afraid neither of the badge's are genuine. Leon.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your answer

    For information, my grandfather has said he has ever seen the balloon observer badge in 1960-1970 but no more.

    For the pilot badge... beautiful

    Hello,
    It is not a Pilots badge it is an Observers badge.
