Andrea Maizzan Collection
This badge is a pre-1943 badge from the Royal Air Force. The group awarded this badge flew JU-87 Stukas which were nicknamed "Picchiatelli" (Little Dive Bombers in essence). The text around the ring translates to "Dive Bomber Group". It was given to pilots who belonged to 96, 97, 101, 102, 103 & 121 "gruppo da bombardamento a tuffo della Regia Aereonautica" which translates into "Diving Bomber Group of Italian King's Air force"
