East Front Medal 1941 - 1942
East Front Medal 1941 – 1942
The Russian Front Medal was instituted by Adolf Hitler on May 26th 1942 to commemorate the first winter campaign in Russia. The award was available to all Wehrmacht personnel, civilians and foreign volunteers who met the required criteria with the main qualification being at least fourteen days of participation in combat on the Russian front between November 15th 1941 and April 15th 1942.
The medal is made of die struck Zinc and comes complete with intact suspension ring and ribbed, rayon ribbon. The medal is in good condition but has lost almost all of its original grey and silver colors (as most of the East Front Medals has) .
