Another 57er mini chain, with DKiG & 100 PAB !
Just picked this little beauty up ! a mini chain or "Frackkettchen " with seven award miniatures attached....they are generally worn on civilian dress suits, on the wearers left lapel, like a "Frack bar" the awards run from right to left in importance, so when attached to the lapel the highest award is, well, the highest !
This chain comes from a sadly unnamed DKiG winner, a Panzer man who was, as you can see, also awarded the PAB for 100 engagements........notice the unusual two piece construction of this badge and the small "O" on the rear, this is a known mark of the maker St u L. All in all a nice item.
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
