Final answer from Garry

My research on this is done.

What I’ve been able to find is that the pin on the cloth badge is that of a German Naval Veterans Association.  That said, I’m going to guess the cloth badge show here is related to a similar organization.  I’ve found many many that are close to this one – but none that match.  I might be a matter of finding the right branch of the German naval Veterans.  They may have badges unique to each branch or group.

Further research  for the pic below indicates that it is a pin or crest of the DRKB – it’s not a German Imperial Cap Badge as one site suggests.

And as for the Eagle with the Swastika …. I must admit defeat. 

I cannot find anything on it.

I enjoyed the diversion from updating my website.

Yours Aye
