Luftwaffe 'Erdkampfabzeichen' in Pouch


 Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge (Erdkampfabzeichen). The Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge was introduced by 'Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring' on 31 March 1942. For award to all Luftwaffe personnel who had distinguished themselves in ground combat. Certain criteria had to be met for award of the badge with the main criteria being three separate ground combat actions. This badge is a nice 'Zink' example, the badge is having a separate silver eagle attached. The badge is not visible maker marked, it can most likely be attributed to production by the company of 'J.E. Hammer & Söhne' in Geringswalde. The badge has naturally a functional pin & catch construction. The medal comes with its matching carton pouch as found together, the pouch is marked 'Luftwaffen Erdkampf Abzeichen' and is nicely maker marked by 'J.E. Hammer & Söhne' from Geringswalde. Rare original set in good condition!
