Reichsluftschutzbund (National Air Defense Union) badge.
The Reichsluftschutzbund (State Air Protection Group) was a Nazi organization founded in late 1932, and from 1933 given the role of air raid protection and civil defence duties. The Reichsluftschutzbund maintained a system of paramilitary ranks similar to that of the Nazi Sturmabteilung (SA).
The bulk of the members were volunteers trained to deal with air raid precautions as well as the resulting damage cause by British and American bombing raids.
Interesting tinnie (not a solid center) in a race track shape . The inscription around the outer ring reads: “Air Defense is Necessary”, with an aircraft apparently diving on a house outline, with a 1st pattern RLB (National Air Defense Union) insignia, all inside the ring. Very lightweight piece. The pin functions well bit of rust here and there but generally in pretty good nick.
