Description

The Jagdgeschwader Richthofen (Fighter Wing Richtofen) was one of a number of commemorative cuff titles introduced by the Luftwaffe to honor famous hero pilots of WWI.

The Richthofen cuff title was introduced in April 1935 for wear by members of the flying group Döberitz who served with Richthofen in WWI. Six months later on October 29th 1935, the Jagdgeschwader Richthofen cuff title was replaced by a new version titled Jagdgeschwader Frhr. v. Richthofen Nr. 1 1917/18.
