History


The Badge was founded by Wilhelm II and was awarded to retired Pilots and Observers who had rendered a minimum of three years of service and were no longer completing further active flights.

The badge was also conferred upon Pilots and Observers who were no longer active due to injury obtained during active service.

This badge was conferred until the end of the Second World War.

The size and composition of this badge varies depending on the manufacturer.

There is a great deal of variation in the size, composition, and cost of Prinzen sized badges.
