Description

This German WWII Luftwaffe Flak Badge from Reddick Militaria is typical of late war production badges with a solid back and die-struck in zinc, as were many of the later production pieces. The details are very nice with the Luftwaffe eagle being incorporated into the single piece construction. The plain back has the typical round wire pin and catch used on these badges.

Anti-Aircraft Flak Battle Badge (German: Flak-Kampfabzeichen der Luftwaffe) was a World War II German military decoration instituted on  January 10, 1941 by the Commander in Chief of the Luftwaffe, Hermann Göring, to commemorate soldiers or servicemen of the Flak Artillery who distinguished themselves in action against enemy aerial or ground attacks (for example, tanks and bunkers). Designed by Wilhelm Ernst Peekhaus, it was of single piece construction with a pin back and clasp. The badge was made in one grade with a Luftwaffe eagle at the top and an oak leaf wreath around the outside rim. In the middle was an 88 mm flak gun with the barrel facing upwards to the right. It was worn on the lower part of the left breast pocket of the service tunic underneath the 1st Class Iron Cross if awarded. The German Army had a similar badge however, earning points towards it were only awarded for the downing of aircraft and not for ground targets.
