Description

Reddick Militaria's German WW2 Infantry Assault Badge is die-struck in solid zinc, like many late-war production pieces. Details are very nice, with the closed wing German Army eagle being incorporated into the single piece construction. The back of this Infantry Assault Badge is flat, being maker marked '26' for the firm B. H. Mayer. located in Pforzheim, Germany. The pin is the heavy round wire type with the typical "folded" sheet metal style hinge and applied catch.

The Infantry Assault Badge (German: Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen) was a German war badge awarded to Waffen SS and Wehrmacht Heer soldiers during the Second World War. This decoration was instituted on 20 December 1939 by the Commander-in-Chief of the German Army, Generalfeldmarschall Walther von Brauchitsch. It could be awarded to members of non-motorized Infantry units and units of the Gebirgsjäger that had participated in Infantry assaults, with light Infantry weapons, on at least three days of battle in the front line on or after 1 January 1940. When a counter offensive led to fighting, it could also apply. Award of the Infantry Assault Badge was authorized at regimental command level.[1]
