Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber 'L/13'


Silver wound badge (Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber). With the outbreak of World War 2, on 1 September 1939, Hitler re-instituted a slightly modified version of the wound badge by altering the WWI pattern helmet on the badge to the newly designed M35 style helmet. The badge was awarded to both military and uniformed non-military personnel and later, (March 1943), to civilian personnel who received wounds as a result of enemy actions. This 'Buntmetall' badge is maker marked with 'L/13', indicating production by the company of 'Paul Meybauer' from Berlin. Of course are the pin and catch fully functional. Hard to find tombak example in very good condition!
