Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a Spanish Civil War Nationalist Capitan Flight Suit Badge. 

Not a lot is known about Spanish Aviation Badges of the Spanish Civil War and Earlier beyond the typical Pilot, Observer, and combination. There are references that call the wing on this badge a "General Aviation" badge, but with a rank of Capitan, it is quite likely that this badge was used for specialists like Navigators or Bombardiers, when worn in this configuration. 

Anyway, the badge, with its Black Eagle of St. John, is Civil War period.
