Gruppe Badge F.A.G. 101

Hi all

I have not seen this badge shown in any references so thought it might be of interest.

As it is for a long-range reconnaissance training unit I really like the imagery of an eagle chick in the style of the Reconnaissance Flight Clasp emerging from an egg bearing the central motif of the Flight Clasp. It comes from the cover of a photo album for I.Gruppe, Fernaufklärungsgeschwader 101.

I would be interested if anyone has other examples of this badge in use.

Just for reference, here is an example of the Reconnaissance Flight Clasp (this one in silver and awarded for 60 operational flights over enemy territory).
