    About the dagger: in the photo provided on the booklet, he has the single bird in the middle of the field of background. I cannot, however distinguish if it has the red and white trim (in this case, a darker grey) that would distinguish him as an Unteroffizier (Equivalent of USAAF Staff Sergeant). I believe he holds the rank of Flieger (Equivalent of USAAF Private) He is not, however, a Senior NCO, at least from my knowledge. However, I am probably wrong, seeing as I am just going of my memory off ranks here. I'm sorry I couldn't identify this item earlier, just a stupid mistake. Any clarification on the ranks will be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Guys, in the photo contained in the DRL sports badge book, he is indeed a private. If the dagger was his, he must have been promoted.

    I will post a really nice wedding portrait photo I have (once I do a pic) showing an NCO wearing the dagger along with some more details.

    Cheers, Ade.

    As promised, a photo from my collection, of the dagger in wear by a senior NCO. And for good measure he even wears the DRL sports badge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Is this the same Adolf as the DRL sports booklet picture? Because if it is, he has been promoted to the rank of Leutnant, thus enabling him to wear the dagger you have.

    If you compare the faces, they are the same person. Look at the shape of the mouth in particular.

    Cheers, Ade.
