Hi Folks,

A friend of mine collects OT militaria, mostly German. His latest acquisition is a tunic from 'Flieger Bataillon Nr. 3'.

I can't recall coming across any air units being referred to as batallions, can anyone shed light on what kind of unit this would be? I assumed it would a unit performing standard recon/spotting/etc. duties; so much of our attention is paid to the Jastas that I realize that my knowledge of the rest of the air units is scant.

Thanks,

Chris
