One more , (i don't want to bore people ) Unknown armelzeichen ,might not be strictly WW1 possibly 1920's but certainly unusual. Seems to be copying a marine flieger erinnerungsabzeichen (retired pilot badge) but without crown.Certainly a ratings badge but not sure of its purpose,anyone got any clues ?? I have a period picture of the badge in wear but no clues there. Ferg.

i present here a vary rare flight book of the LFA pilot Flugzeugobermatrose Bommer. It contains more then 130 flights during his pilot training at LFA Johannisthal and later his fighter training at Kampf-Einsitzer-Schule Langfuhr.

Hi flow different land planes including Fok. D.VII, Pfalz D.XII and other fighter airplanes.

It is the only flight book i know of an LFA pilot.
