    Unknown air force badge - Any idea?

    Recommended Posts

    Hello Gentlemen,

    Does anybody know this badge?

    Obviously an Air Force one, possibly of an instructor (see the torch), but from which country?

    Thanks for letting me know.

    It has an Italian look to me... The flames of the torch look very much like the flaming bomb on some Italian badges. I haven't found the badge, but it is similar to these Italian badges and wings:

    "Badge, Strategic Reconnaissance, Italian Air Force (Regia Aeronautica)"

    Italian Pilot Wings 1923-35

    Italian Pilot Wings 1935-43

    Thank you all for your help and for the Italian lead.

    It eventually help me find THE solution:

    it is an Italian beret badge worn by members of the Italian Army Air Force (link: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviazione_dell'Esercito).

    See below a similar badge sold on eBay.it by 'italiamilitare': Fregio da Basco AVIAZIONE DELL'ESERCITO aves in Metallo e Nuovo

    All the best,

    Jean-Samuel Karlen
