Thought I would throw in a close-up photo of the badge!

Zeppelin air ships were a large part of the German attempt to control the air war in WW1. They were used to bomb London and HMAS Sydney was attacked by one. This is the Pilot's badge for a Zeppelin crew.

Nice photo! But only 3 of the pin-backs are WW1. The upper left looks like your usual '39 KVK2wX. Others are:

Prussian 1914 EK1

Oldenburg FAK1

Mecklenburg FFK1

Ribbon Bar looks like a 5X bar to me with Czech Anschlu? Medal in last place. Rare to find any photo of a Zep badge in wear!!! :beer:
