THE LUFTWAFFE GROUND COMBAT BADGES
Was Instituted on 31 March 1942
Known Makers : GB (Soldered Eagle) G H Osang (1 Rivet type) GWL (2 Rivets) MuK5, RK, (3 Rivet)

(S47) A Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the later war type dating from the 1944/45 period. This example is the first I have seen where they have put the rivet in and stippled it to match the feathers. This is the type that was war economy, where the early war examples had a bronze brass over eagle held by a single rivet attached to the badge. The badge therefore now, is of one piece construction with a separately applied hinge and hook and large dome rivet to the reverse. The badge is in very good condition and was given to the replacement luftwaffe army who did army combat duties and as such, they got the badge for the same criteria as the army counterparts.

(K228) A nice example of a Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the type that was originally manufactured with a brass over eagle. This has been either removed or not applied, which was standard with the war restrictions on good quality metal being applied. The award other than that, has toned over the years to a reasonable grey colour, still giving contrast to the clouds. Becoming harder to find, these badges were awarded to the Luftwaffe who were engaged in ground combat duties like their army counterpart members.
