Vintage WWII German Kriegsmarine Navy Officer of the Watch Metal Badge with lug fittings.

£27.95

Vintage WWII German Kriegsmarine Navy Officer of the Watch Metal Badge (Kriegsmarine Wachmannschaften Abzeichen). With lug fittings.

Stamped in brass, and then gilded. This badge is in excellent condition with a little bit of minor toning. It has 2 lug type fittings on the back.

There would generally only be one or two of these for each vessel, or shore facility and these would have been transfered between crew members as they went on watch duty. They were not issued to individuals. In the reference book "Torpedos Los!" by Gordon Williamson (published in 2006), this badge is number 124 in their list of insignia. Worn on left breast.

These badges are often offered for hundreds of pounds, but because we have managed to purchase a small quanity, in Germany, we are able to offer these at a very reasonable price while stock lasts. We also have a few of these badges with a slider fitting instead of the lugs; please see our other listing for this type.

The insignia measures 52.0mm x 65.3mm, and weighs 16g.
