Infantry Assault Badge in Bronze
The Infantry Assault Badge in silver was introduced on December 20th 1939 by Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsch, for award to Officers and EM/NCOs of non-motorized Infantry and Mountain Infantry units. Criteria for bestowal of the badge varied, with the main qualification being participation in three separate Infantry assaults. On June 1st 1940 a bronze version of the Infantry Assault Badge was introduced for award to Officers and EM/NCOs of Motorized Infantry units.
This is a die struck solid backed zinc award. Nicely detailed badge which is complete with original hinge, pin and catch. The badge retains about 15% of the original bronze color paint wash.
Much harder to find compared to the silver version!!
