German NSFK/DLV Glider Pilot Dagger

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgFrom the same place as the RAD hewer below is this NSFK/DLV Glider Pilot dagger. Manufactured by Paul Weyersberg & Co, Solingen, it’s a pretty sweet example. These daggers were issued to members of the National Socialist Flyer Corps which was a feeder organisation intended to teach basic flight skills to party members. Graduates were then pushed into the rapidly growing Luftwaffe.

The subject in the middle here is NSFK-Obergruppenführer Karl Sauke, SA bully boy and all around shit. He was eventually convicted in 1950 of assault and illegal detention but the British War Crimes Tribunal did not confirm his 6 year sentence and he was released.
