The padded EM/NCO’s machine embroidered badge is in the form of a vertically oval wreath, with laurel leaves to the right side and oak-leaves to the left side in pale silver/gray threads, encompassing a stylized national eagle in flight, clutching a swastika in its talons, in silver/gray threads, on a cut-out Luftwaffe blue/grey wool base. The eagles wings extends beyond the outer edges of the wreath.
The Observer’s qualification badge was introduced by Hermann Göring on March 26TH 1936 for award to Observers, Navigators and Bombardiers who had met the required criteria. The Observer’s badge was awarded on an individual basis and criteria for bestowal included five operational flights over enemy territory or a minimum of two months active service. As with other flyer’s specialty badges a cloth version of the Observer’s Badge was authorized for wear on the flight blouse with a machine embroidered pattern for EM/NCO’s and a hand embroidered pattern for Officer’s.
