    Default Sturmgeschutz Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen

    Here is part of my Sturmgeschutz related collection,

    This Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen was part of the estate of Major Gottfreid Geissler a famous Sturmgeschutz Officer.

    Geissler was awarded the Knights Cross for combat in Estonia in 1941, his Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen was awarded for the same series of combat actions. At this time he was an Oberleutnant in Sturmgeschutz Abteilung 185.

    The badge is of solid make , in zinc and was made by the maker Weidemann.

    regards

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Marco, welcome to the forum.
    Please post some images if you have them, it would be good to see Geissler's awards together even if only on the forum.
