  1. You have forgot the one I posted, Another navy airship badge is located at the Zeppelin museum at Zeppelinheim. Kind regards Alex
  2. It was just a commemorative badge like the air ship badges not a qualification badge. I don't know why they don't introduce a qualification badge like for pilots or observers during the war. Kind regards Alex
  3. Hi John, no one can say how many badges Godet sold. All numbers you heard are estimations. I know 3 badges in different museums. another 5-6 in collections and 2 on market over the last 10 years It seems that Godet badges were not very popular at that time. Kind regards Alex You mean this badge?
  4. Congratulations to this nice badges, especially to the full size Godet badge. Kind regards Alex
  5. This medals were allways made of silver except the gold version. The ribbon bar is not from the period. Kind regards Alex
  6. If you never seen something before, it is not a good sign. what brings you to buy this without any reference? I ask because, I will never buy something I don't have a good feeling and never seen before, especially when it was offered on a show. I don't have a good feeling on both badges. kind regards alex
  7. Something new from my collection. The MP from navy see pilot Fl.Mt. Heinrich Amen. Amen was with I. SFA from January 1917 and received the "Fliegerzulage" from 06.04.1918. Kind regards Alex
  8. Wellcome on this forum. Please keep in mind that this is a military forum not a platform for political discussion or glorify political leaders. This thread could turn in a controversial discussion. Kind regards Alex
  9. Not they don't have this patches officially, but as often at the Fliegertruppe they do what they wanted. Kind regards Alex
  10. Congratulation to this awesome badge. Like I wrote you, a textbook "square-punch" version in gilded bronce. Kind regards Alex
  11. Great work Ilieff. I love your website. I have an imperial pilot badge that I can offer for your page. Let me know if you are interessted. Kind regards Alex
  12. I'm still lokking for informations on this man. Are there any sources available that might help? Kind regards Alex

  14. Max Immelmann Werner Voss Fritz Rumey Paul Bäumer Josef Jacobs Heinrich Gontermann Karl Bolle And some more Kind regards Alex
  15. If you have something that doesn't exist, how you call this? When do you thing was the gilded made? Are this minis made of silver? Kind regards Alex
  16. Because thre is no navy air gunnar badge. This is a mythos. Both badges are from the same design. If something doesn't comes up often, not makes it to an original. Kind regards Alex
  17. Imho both miniature are not from the period. The gilded badge makes no sence for me. Kind regards Alex
  18. What am incredible nice group. I assume the medal bar belongs to Anton Born too. Congratulation to this group. Do you have any further infos to Born? Kind regards Alex

Taken after the award of the air gunnar badge. And the highlight is this portrait of him wearing the bavarian air gunnar badge. I never seen another picture of an Maybauer bavarian air gunnar in wear. Some of you may know this picture. Even he already was awarded the IC I, he doesn't wear the cross on this picture.
