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.

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.

Carl Croneiß (born January 9, 1891 in Bad Durkheim , † July 31, 1973 in Nuremberg ) was a German military and Nazi politician.

"In the autumn of 1915 Croneiß was assigned to the German military mission in Constantinople . The following years of the war he spent as an aviator of the Ottoman flying force , first as imperial Ottoman captain of the Turkish Aviation Department Chernahevicz, later at the Feldfliegerabteilung 1 Dardanelles. In 1916 he became field flier department 2 Irac, Baghdadand Persia. In 1918 he became commander of the Turkish flying school San Stefano near Constantinople.

In 1919 his command in Turkey was lifted. He returned to Germany, where he was dismissed in 1920 in the rank of captain from the army. In the war Croneiß was awarded the Iron Cross of both classes, the Oldenburg Friedrich August Cross of both classes, the Knight's Cross of the Order of Albrecht with swords, the Hessian Medal of Honor , the Austrian Military Cross of Merit III. Class with swords, the Ottoman Imtiaz and Liakat Medals , the Mecidiye Order , the Iron Crescent , the Wound Badge awarded in black and the pilot's badge."
