    Rings with military connection? ID?

    Recommended Posts

    Good evening Gentlemen!

    Got this photo of a German soldier who wears two rings that might be connected to certain units or branches of the military.

    Can anybody ID the rings or sport an educated guess?

    Hi Chris,

    thank you for the reply. You´re right, he wears three rings. The Flugzeugführerabzeichen came to my mind, too. The design of the eagle seems unusual for a German one in this period. I wonder if it could be early Reichswehr.

    Gentlemen : Probably the young man is member of a Freikorps air unit . and the badge on the ring ,to my view ,is the Zeppelin one

    Tony : I relied only in my memory . remembering that the luftschiffers had a badge . but after verification i need to say that i was wrong the badge for the airshippers existed but was oval .but the badge on the ring still appears to be Naval .because the bird is facing left.
