Heer / Waffen-SS General Assault Badge

1,094.75 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. To the reverse is the ball type hinge, thin pin and catch all intact. The badge has lost virtually all of the silver paint.

 

Non maker marked example, but with the rather unique hinge/pin/catch, the maker would be easy to find with some research!!
