1,440.46 kr

The General Assault badge was introduced on June 1’st 1940, by Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsch. Awarded to support personnel who were ineligible for the Infantry or Panzer Assault badges. Criteria for award of the badge was basically the same as the criteria for award of the Infantry and Panzer Assault badges with the main qualification being participation in three separate assaults in a supporting role. The badge was awarded to Pioneer, artillery, assault gun, anti-tank, anti-aircraft and medical personnel.


The badge is constructed of Zinc with a bright silver paint wash. To the reverse is the hinge, pin and thin catch all intact. The badge has lost 95% of the silver paint with just a small paret remaining to the eagles head and wreath. Reverse has about 60% of the silver finish still intact.


A nice example with sharp details!!
