General Assault Badge


General Assault Badge (Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen). The General Assault badge was introduced on 1 June 1940 by 'Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsch' for award 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 semi-hollow type badge is executed in 'Zink' and still retains a fair amount of its original chrome type silver finish. The badge is complete with a functional pin and catch. The badge is not visible maker marked but can be attributed to the company of 'Rudolf A. Karneth & Söhne' from Gablonz an der Neiße. There is one small L/14 marking which probably has been added to the badge postwar. Nice original badge in good used condition!
