1,267.61 kr

The German armed forces spent a considerable amount of time training how to improve the accuracy of firing their small arms. An award was developed to recognize individuals who excelled in shooting. The Marksmanship lanyard was instituted on June 29th of 1936 through an executive order signed by AH. The shooting lanyard award was attached to the uniform by placing one of the loops on the button of the shoulder board and the other end on the button of the jacket.

 

This is a 1’st Pattern Heer / Army Marksmanship Lanyard, Grade 1. Constructed of thick bullion strings, one end with a loop made of a single strand of string while the other end caps in an oval shape holding the light metal shield with national eagle. This section also has a loop on the end. The reverse with field grey backing cloth still intact. With signs of real use, backing cloth with a couple of moth bites.
