French Air Force Insignia

Hello,

could you help me to find the unit that owns this badge? It appears on a Bloch 210 based at Istres in 1938.

Thank you.

JF

Probably from GB I/19 but it's difficult to say with the quality of the picture.

Has GB I / 19 not only been equipped with Douglas DB7?

They received DB-7 in April 1940 before that they used Bloch 210s (and maybe other types). Again I can't certify this emblem belongs to this Groupe.

You're right ! The photo is in bad shape but it appears that the unit is the I/19.

Thank you !
