ARMY AND WAFFEN SS BADGES

These badges were worn on the left breast pocket. The Army and Waffen SS awarded the following badges for combat service:

The Infantry Assault Badge in silver was the equivalent of the American Combat Infantry Badge, and was awarded to members of infantry units who had participated in at least three infantry assaults or counterattacks. Only one grade was given. It is worth noting that the silver award was limited to actual infantry or mountain infantry units; a bronze version was authorized for motorized infantry.

The Panzer Assault Badge in silver was awarded to tank crews for a similar number of actions. In 1943, advanced Panzer Assault Badges for 25, 50, 75, and 100 assaults were also authorized, the 75 and 100 assault versions being finished in gold rather than silver. The award was restricted to tank crews; a bronze version was provided for members of armored car and panzer grenadier units.

The General Assault Badge was awarded to men who participated in attacks but were not eligible for the Infantry or Panzer awards. These included assault gun, anti-tank and artillery crews, combat engineers, medics, and other close-support troops. In 1943, numbered versions were authorized, the "100" version being in gold with a black eagle.

The Close Combat Clasp recognized the dangers of hand-to-hand combat without armor support, and was awarded in bronze, silver, and gold versions. No less an authority than Hitler himself considered the Close Combat Clasp in Gold second only to the Knight’s Cross as the highest award an infantryman could attain.

The Anti-partisan Badge was instituted by Heinrich Himmler in January 1944, and was awarded primarily to Waffen SS and other anti-partisan units in bronze, silver, and gold versions.

The Wound Badge was awarded in black, silver and gold, depending on the number and severity of the wounds) received. A special version was made for those wounded in the July 20, 1944 bomb attempt on Hitler's life; 14 of these were awarded in black, 3 in Silver, and 7 in Gold.

Our high-quality embroidered reproduction measures three inches tall by slightly more than two inches wide. The patch was worn on the lower right sleeve. It features an eagle’s head peering from behind a sprig of oak leaves, embroidered onto an oval of felted wool. The badge was instituted late in the war, and all of the kills had to be made from Sept. 1, 1944 going forward. For this reason, and because snipers composed a small portion of the German Army, the Sniper Badge is one of the most rare of all the World War II German awards.

GERMAN SPORTS BADGES
The SA Sports Badge was awarded to Germans who successfully completed a series of physical fitness tests. Recipients were required to repeat and pass the tests on an annual basis in order to retain the badge. The tests ranged from track and field exercises to swimming, shooting and grenade-throwing to map-reading and signaling. The badge was awarded in three grades, bronze, silver and gold. The badge is composed of a relatively simple design. An upward pointed sword is superimposed on a swastika, which is encircled by an oak leaf wreath. Our high-quality reproduction is fitted with a pin-back. German SA Sports Badge in bronze

KRIEGSMARINE (NAVY) BADGES

   The most famous Kriegsmarine award was the U-boat Combat Badge, awarded only in gold. The Submarine Close Combat Clasp was established in 1944 to recognize prolonged or particularly dangerous service, and was eventually awarded in bronze, silver, and gold versions. The High Seas Fleet Badge acknowledged a combat cruise on either a battleship or cruiser, the Destroyer Badge on a destroyer, and the Auxiliary Cruiser Badge with armed merchant raiders like the famous "Atlantis." The E-boat Badge was awarded for service on torpedo boats, whose daring raids constantly harassed Allied shipping in the British home waters. Their attack on a D-Day rehearsal at Slapton Sands in 1944 caused over 1500 American casualties, a disaster that was kept secret at the time and did not come to light until the 1980's. The coast artillery also fell under the control of the Navy, and the Coast Artillery Badge was awarded to those who saw combat service with this arm, best known for manning the big guns of the "Atlantic Wall."

  The Danzig Cross was awarded for meritorious service to the Nazi Party within the “Free City” of Danzig. After World War I, the Versailles Treaty stipulated that Danzig would be a free city, under the auspices of the League of Nations. The majority of Danzig’s population was German, and by 1933 the city’s government was under the control of the Nazis. In 1939, with the invasion of Poland, Danzig was incorporated into the Reich. The Danzig Cross was instituted by Gauleiter Albert Forster in August of 1939, and most of the awards were made two months later. The cross is in white enamel, outlined in gilt. The medal is superimposed by the twin crosses of Danzig, and topped by the city’s coronet, also in gilt. The reverse is fitted with a heavy-duty flat pin-back, flared in the center. Our museum-quality reproduction is of the first-class version, of which only 88 were awarded. The medal measures slightly more than 2 ½ inches tall, and nearly 2 inches wide German Danzig Cross 1st CLass

MUSEUM QUALITY BADGES

These Badges are die-struck in in limited quantity in solid zinc, like many late-war production pieces. Details are very nice, with the closed wing German Army eagle being incorporated into the single piece construction. The backs are flat or hollow, with maker marks. The pin is the heavy round wire type or flat pin with the typical "folded" sheet metal style hinge and applied catch. The discerning collector will not be disappointed in these reproductions. These badges are available as special order items only which may lengthen normal delivery.

REPRODUCTION
MILITARY IDENTITY BOOKS
 

The Germans were famous for their meticulous record keeping, and nowhere was this better exemplified that in the soldbuch (pay book) that was carried by each member of the armed forces. It contained not only the necessary personal information — photograph, date and place of birth, parents, etc. — but also detailed records of the man’s promotions, payment, clothing issue, and weapons for which he was responsible. This was the soldier’s most important personal document, and  pity the poor landser who accidentally lost his! Needless to say, captured soldbuchs were a useful source of information for Allied intelligence.

These copies are taken from original documents, and are correct right down to the color of the cardboard covers and bindings. They are ideally suited to the requirements of the collector or re-enactor.
