Default Aero club buckle

Here is a recent acquisition. Not seen one of these before so I assume fairly scarce .
I may be wrong but I thought that the Kaiserliche aero club was a civil organisation ,precursor to the flieger Korp . I wonder why the buckle is a military item with aero club centre ,transitional thing maybe ? Any ideas ?

Hi Ferg!
This type of buckle needs not to have a military background - try "Feldbinde" or "Feldbindenschloß" in Google: You´ll see loads of different types - police, firefighter, hunters etc.
My first thought was: Privatly soldered together from a buckle and a button like these:

But, on the other hand: Up to now I have not seen an aero club button as well...

Nice item!
Regards
Hagrid

I have never seen an aero club button either also this the centre plaque is too big for a button it’s almost 29mm across . If it is a privately made piece it’s certainly been on there a long time judging by the verdigree and patina
