    (J1489) A very nice and so far unidentified Glider Cloth Patch that shows a silver bird within an oakleaf wreath. The patch shows some mothing but is in very nice condition. In the book "NSKK and NSFK", David Littlejohn shows a similar example and says unidentified. Recently acquired from a German house clearance agent, the cross was in amongst a pile of Luftwaffe and NSFK insignia.

    (K349) An Early Luftwaffe Honour Goblet being stamped 835 silber with a crown and crescent mark as well as an eagle mark and maker marked Joh Wagner und Sohn. The goblet has had a few knocks and bashes and I feel someone may have attempted to scrub the swastika at some time. But this is still intact and visible. The goblet was preseted on the 31/5/41 to an Oberfeldwebel Johannes Lehmann who was also holder of the German Cross in Gold as well as the iron crosses. He is also listed as being with a KG unit. The goblet also comes in a custom made box that was made post war that says who it was presented to etc. A very nice early quality award. Very few of these were originally made in silver.

Then there are 11 photographs showing Herr Schmidt in his uniform with his younger brother, who was an HJ Member being attached to the Luftwaffe Flak Unit. There is a nice one of Paul Schmidt wearing an officers dagger. A couple of him next to his aircraft. One in his pilot uniform. Etc.

    (P314) A Luftwaffe Pilot's Badge in its Case of Issue. The badge is the Earlier nickel silver type and has been well used and worn. The reverse has the eagle held by two rivets to the wreath with the lefthand rivet being tightened. The hinge and hook on this example are unaltered and it would appear that only the tightening of the rivet was the only repair done to this badge. The wreath is slightly twisted. The eagle is held nice and tight to the wreath. The eagle has nicely fretted out wing tips and is of nice quality. The case is a two-piece hinged silk lined example that has the award's title to the lid in gold letters that were proabably once silver but have toned. The silk has a little tear to the centre where the swastika and eagle has worn through. The press stud still holds the case securely and this and the hinge are magnetic. A nice example of an early war period pilot's badge that has been used and worn in service.

    The Glider Pilot Badge is among the rarest of all the qualification badges of the Luftwaffe of the Third Reich. Information about the badge has been almost as scarce as genuine examples of the award itself - until now. Here for the first time is a comprehensive collection of such information. Not only are all of the currently known varieties of the badge itself illustrated and described in clear detail, but also included are an overall history of the glider troops, accounts of glider licenses, award documents, and presentation cases, and a lot more. Author Stijn David has done an excellent job of gathering all of this information together into a fascinating book that belongs on the shelf of anyone who is interested in the history of the German Luftwaffe during World War Two.
