Good evening Gentlemen!

Got this photo of a German soldier who wears two rings that might be connected to certain units or branches of the military.

Can anybody ID the rings or sport an educated guess?

Thanks!

HI, I think he is wearing 3 rings, maybe hust for the photo. On the pinkie it seems to be a regular band ring, then one with the prussian pilots badge, I cannot identify the other one but possibly just a patriotic one?

For some reason I doubt he was a pilot?

Hi Chris,

thank you for the reply. You´re right, he wears three rings. The Flugzeugführerabzeichen came to my mind, too. The design of the eagle seems unusual for a German one in this period. I wonder if it could be early Reichswehr.

Gentlemen : Probably the young man is member of a Freikorps air unit . and the badge on the ring ,to my view ,is the Zeppelin one

Hi Bayern,

thank you for your suggestion. As I am not quite sure what badge you are referring to, can you give an example, please?

Thanks,

Tony : I relied only in my memory . remembering that the luftschiffers had a badge . but after verification i need to say that i was wrong the badge for the airshippers existed but was oval .but the badge on the ring still appears to be Naval .because the bird is facing left.

Hi Chris,

thank you for providing the sample ring. It lokks indeed similar apart from the ribbon at he base which differs slightly but could be explained by different manufacturers
