Konteradmiral Bernhard Rogge with full array of 1957 decorations.

Article about: I saw this one earlier on a dealer's site and thought it was a good image to save here. Konteradmiral Bernhard Rogge with all of his awards in the 1957 version on display.

    They posted a close-up of this on the WAF--certainly looks like the badge still has its swaz:
    Thought it was !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Maybe it had to with the fact that Rogge was awarded the diamonds version of the Hilfskreuzer badge and wanted to show this?

    Since the special diamonds versions of the various Kriegsmarine war badges were never officially instituted and thus not included in the 1957 range of awards, he would not have been able to get a replacement badge with diamonds, only the standard pattern.

    (Of course, it was still prohibited to wear the version with the Swastika no matter what, but apparently he got away with it.)

    Yes it was, but he still had them hanging in his closet. Here is his frock coat with his non-diamond badge still on it, with swastika.
