Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis badge is an early pre-RZM example of the Officers Cap Badge for the Deutscher Luftsportverband. The DLV was created in 1933 in order to establish the training foundation for the later revealed Luftwaffe. I have an officers dagger for this organization here.

New Zealand Cadet Corps Cap Badge

Posted in Cap Badges, Collar Dogs and Shoulder Titles with tags on July 30, 2013 by The Dude

Flag_of_New_ZealandThis is the cap badge for the New Zealand Cadet Corps. The cadet Corps is an affiliated organization, run by the NZDF with a focus on army training for youth. There are sibling groups for the air force and navy. I use lower case here deliberately because I found them to be annoying little shits.
