Turkish Pilots Badge variations

Recommended Posts

This nice german made ottoman pilot badge comes from the estate of an known german pilot who served in the ottoman air service during the war. I love this badge, one of few I ever seen.

Great looking badge!

Is that the same type of badge as shown on the photo in your post from August 3, 2013?  (I am not implying that this is his badge, but it looks like the same manufacturing style.)

Correct, it is the same badge but from another guy. It is from an german manufacturer.

The owner was later pilot with Jasta 22, 6 and 48. Really nice group.

German pilot in Turkish army.

He doesn't have Turkish Pilots Badge, but still very interesting painting.

A saxon Heinrich guy.

 

Unfortunately i have no pics with a ottoman flight badge, but these 2 guys with -i believe- ottoman uniform:

- Genmaj. Artur Bopp (wuertt.) pic was taken 1911 at the Euphrat region - in this time he was LtCol.

- Genmaj. Georg Bock von Wülfingen (saxon). pic was taken after 1918.
