Turkish Naval Pilot Badge

Recommended Posts

I should have some good material in Volume II of my book which covers Ottoman Flight Badges. It is said to have been created in 1917 and I have pictures of it being worn.

Regards

I think Ahmet Ali was the first African Ottoman naval pilot in the world in 1916. His grandmother was from Borno,Nigeria. He has another photo above.
