Long Range Fighter Clasp - The reverse is inscribed "Oblt Wolf Ettel." Ettel was a fighter pilot ace who entered the Luftwaffe in 1939. He flew over 250 missions in Russian & the Mediterranean & scored 124 kills. He was killed in 1943 over Sicily. I have no provenance that this was actually his clasp.
