unknown Luftwaffe emblem


Recommended Posts

Came across some hand painted colorful shields on Weitze, belonging to the Luftstreitkräfte and/or Luftwaffe. Wondering which squadron they might represent I managed to find matching pictures but they failed to give definite answers. All I know is that "lion chasing rooster" is a WW1 double-decker airplane and hence it can't be WW2. Can you identify "cupid shooting gallic rooster"?  Latter has to be ww2 for the text says the umbrella is (Neville) Chamberlain's. Much obliged for your assistance.

The "cupid shooting gallic rooster" with the umbrella added to the mix was a short-lived emblem of 7./JG 26.

The emblem was introduced around the time of the III. Gruppe's formation, late September or early October 1939, and was abandoned by early 1940. Its replacement was the well-known red heart emblem.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
