Unfortuneately I don't own the Kriegsmarine volume of Angolia & Schlicht so could anyone of you identify the patch please? It looks a bit like a sextant to me but that's more or less a wild guess. All suggestions welcome.
According to Brian L. Davis' Badges and Insignia of the Third Reich 1933-1945, it's the specialty patch for a Entfernungsmesser mit Fla. E. Messausbildung (see below). Davis translates that as "Range Taker," but I'll leave the German to you.
