Historical reference.

The breastbadge "Shooter and Flight Radist" (Fliegerschützenabzeichen für Bordfunke) was established on August 12, 1936 by Reich Minister of the Luftwaffe Reichsmarshal Hermann Göring. Qualification marks were awarded to graduates of aviation schools who successfully completed training in the specialization of flight crews, flight engineers (flight mechanics), and flight assistants. To pass the qualification requirements for the badge, candidates were given to complete a two-month regulatory course or take part in five combat missions. If during the operational (combat) departure of the air gunners, the flight mechanic, the flight attendant were injured, then the rewarding with the qualification mark took place ahead of time.
