Das Hitler-Adler-Bataillon (Ich trag das braune Fliegerkleid...)

I just want to share information and the lyrics of the song, maybe not perfect. Was this song made for the NSFK?

Hello, Teppeny

No, the NSFK was formed 4 years later, in 1937 (while this is a 1933 song). Sorry I had to remove your lyrics, but they contained way too many misinformation. Unfortunately, at the moment I have the (correct) lyrics of only one strophe (from F. K. Prieberg's "Handbuch"). It goes like this:

3. So zieht am Himmel eine Schar,
bei Wolken, Sturm und Winden,
das Hakenkreuz am Flügelrand
steht hier, euch zu verkünden:

Heil dir, mein Vaterland, voran
zum Trutz der Reaktion,
wacht über dir der Fliegersmann
vom Hitler-Adler-Bataillon.

As you can see, every line (except for the last one) is different from those that you posted. In future, please post only lyrics from songbooks and songcards, preferably pre-1945. You can find many of them here http://www-old.bildpostkarten.uos.de/index.php (but not this song though).

Cheers,
Ivan
