French Air Force enlisted pilot pre-1916

French Air Force enlisted pilot pre-1916

Enlisted pilot badges of France, worn on the left sleeve before 1916, were typically all woven into a wool or cloth backing . This example is unusual in that the propeller is attached over the top and made of bronze. Non commissioned officer's badges were typically a combination of woven silk and metallic bullion, with variations in colour. Officer's badges were normally all metallic bullion. Some pilots eschewed the arm badge and unofficially wore instead one of many golden bird jewelry pieces on the left breast. In 1916 a totally different metal badge was issued for wear on the right breast.
