L010486 DLV MEMBER'S LAPEL PIN. (Mitglied Aufschlagnadel)

BACKGROUND: Although there had been a civilian flying organization, entitled, DLV, Deutscher Luftfahrtverband, (German Aviation Association), formed in Bremen in 1902 it wasn’t until March 1933 that the Nazi era DLV, Deutscher Luftsportverband, (German Air Sport League), was officially established by absorbing all civilian flying organizations into a single organization, by law. The DLV consisted of a civilian section commanded by Hauptmann a.D. Bruno Loerzer with Hermann Göring as honorary president and the Fliegerschaft, (Pilot Base), the clandestine core of the newly forming Luftwaffe under control of the RLM, Reichsluftfahrtministerium (National Ministry of Aviation). Prior to this in 1931 the SA, Sturm Abteilung, (Storm Troopers), had established the NSFK e. V. Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps eingetragen Verband, (National Socialist Flying Corps registered Association), in an attempt to enlist personnel who were ineligible to join the Flieger-SA. (Flight-SA), The NSFK e V. was also absorbed into the DLV in March 1933, and the new DLV insignia was basically a modification of the insignia developed by the NSFK e V..

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The die struck alloy construction insignia with nickel/silver plated and enameled finishes features a canted, black enamel swastika superimposed on horizontally extended, nickel/silver plated, stylized wings and a vertical, two blade propeller, all encompassed by a translucent red enamel circle. The reverse of the insignia has an extended, soldered on button hole tab and is well marked with the embossed manufacturer’s name and location, "Wilh. Deumer Lüdenscheid" and "Ges. Gesch.", indicating, Gesetzlich Geschützt (Protected by Law). Scarce.
