ARMY PARATROOPERS BADGE
Instituted on 1st September 1937
The Army Paratroopers badge only had a service life of approx two years making it one of the rarest Army badges you can acquire. The Army Troops who were qualified were allowed though, to wear their Army paratroopers award if they were tranfered to the Luftwaffe and continued to be Paratroopers. So far we have only encountered Original badges to be made from "Bunt metal" (Mixed metal alloy of zinc,brass,etc ) and Aluminium.

There has been much dedate in the early part of 2001, as to wheather these badges exsisted. But research has shown that infact both marked and un marked Juncker badges do exist, For a full blow by blow account please take the time to read the following Juncker Para badge

(N823) An Army Para Badge by the firm of C E Juncker, although the badge is unmarked. The badge has the usual features associated with this maker. Being constructed of zinc, the badge is a 1943 re-issue and matches all known textbook examples, with a few of its well known flaws. The badge retains much of its original finish. It comes with a little history, I was told when I purchased the badge that it was picked up by a member of the Royal Armoured Car Regiment who swapped it for chocolates with German civilians at the side of the road. Very scarce to find.

SORRY I AM SOLD BUT LEFT FOR REFERENCE

The Face of Courage
is a rare title that is packed with information and can easily serve as a definitive reference, and yet often reads like a fast-paced novel. It is the story of the 98 soldiers of the German Armed Forces — Army, Air Force and Waffen-SS — who were awarded both the Knight's Cross and the Close Combat Clasp in Gold during World War II. These men were members of a unique group. They were honored for actions that helped decisively influence the battlefield, and they stared into the eyes of death on no less than 50 occasions. While individuals were often honored for one or the other quality, it was a rare man indeed that showed both leadership prowess and the ability to survive close combat on many occasions. Although more than 7,000 soldiers received the Knight's Cross — Germany's highest military award, often compared to the United States' Congressional Medal of Honor or the British Victoria Cross — only 98 also received the highest award for physical courage in the face of the enemy. While the student of World War II may find many familiar names in this book, there are also a number of less-famous soldiers that achieved this high honor. In addition to offering several pages of text and photographs devoted to each of the individual recipients, the book offers a concise overview of the creation, purpose and award criteria for both of the medals, a discussion of contentious cases and exhaustive footnotes. Here are the names of the 98: Auer…Baichl…Baunach…Becker…Bialetzki…Boosfeld…Buchner…Buck…Degrelle…Deutschmann…Dittlof…Donnhauser…Dutter…Eckert…Eisele…Fink…Finke…Franke…Frankenfeld…Friedrich…Friedrich…Gössmann…Grunau…Hack…Hackl…Hamberger…Hansen…Harthan…Hertel…Hinz…Hofbauer…Holzer…Jacobeit…Jochims…Juchem…Juschkat…Kämpfe…Kaiser…Kempas…Klein…Knittel…Konopacki…Konopka…Kranz…Kroeg…Kutschkau…Lainer…Lehmann…Lex…Lindenberg…Loos…Lorenz…Macher…Mager…Maringgele…Meitzel…Meyer…Misera…Möller…Möller…Moldenhauer…Müller…Obschil…Ostermeier…Peichl…Phoenix…Pössinger…Preuss…Radermacher…Rentschler…Richter…Richter…Rudnick…Rutkowski…Sauer…Sawatzki…Schäfer…Schlags-Koch…Schmelser…Schneck…Schreiber…Schreiber…Schulze…Schwanbeck…Seebach…Singer…Stadler…Tittel…Vincon…Volker…Wandmaker…Wenzelburger…Werner…Wimmer…Wisliceny…Wolf…Wulf… To purchase your copy please click on the link (Picture) to the left
