    Thank you all for the nice feedback

    This next medal is a big mystery
    The medal is original, oak leaves wreath is also original. However, they may not belong together. However, it was a medal issued as late as August 12th 1944. It is named 40-year medal with 50 years oak leaves, instituted by Hitler. I have not found any picture of this in any reference book, I hope I might have a bit rare medal here. Have posted photos on both the WAF and GCA, but there are mixed opinions on this.

    Faithful Service Cross with Oakleaves

    I would appreciate if anyone can help with information !

    English: I am sad when I see all the items you have, I who thought I had a pretty nice collection :/
    No reason to be sad! The smaller the collection you have, the easier it is to acquire new objects to the collection. For me, I'm struggling a little bit getting new medals I'm missing to my collection. Remember I have spent three (very active) years on this collection !

    Tapper og Tro medaljen 1944
    Bravery and Loyality Cross (Quisling Cross)

    Bronze Latin cross with out-turned ends to the arms, crossed swords between the arms, with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with ‘Sun Eagle’ symbol of the Nasjonal Samling, being a circular gilt-edged red enamel disc bearing a gold cross, a gilt eagle with wings outstretched above; the reverse inscribed ‘TAPPER OG TRO’ in ‘Nordic’ script; on original ribbon with top bar mounted for wear. The Cross began life as the ‘Order for Bravery and Loyalty’, instituted by the collaborationist Nasjonal Samling government under Vidkun Quisling to be awarded to Norwegian combat forces on the same basis as the German Iron Cross. Shortly afterwards, however, Josef Terboven, German Reichskommissar of Norway, dictated that only German awards were to be worn by Norwegian collaborationist forces. (Terboven and Quisling has a long history of rivalry and disagreement with Terboven doing his utmost to minimise the influence of Quisling, despite the orders of Adolf Hitler to help build the Nasjonal Samling). The Order was thus awarded for only a very brief period. In 1944, a very few examples had the ‘Sun Eagle’ symbol affixed to the face, covering the date ‘1941’ in ‘Nordic’ script and were awarded to members of the Nasjonal Samling, such awards being referred to as ‘politisk utgave’ (political awards). After Allied victory in May 1945, recipients of the award naturally did everything possible to conceal the fact. As a consequence, it is extremely rare.

    Hi Jørn,

    I think these oakleaves belong to the Wehrmacht 25 year service medal indicating an additional award for 40 years service.

    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
