    I have to say, I quite love the idea of using a fieldgrau cloth background. Great idea, hope you don't mind if I steal it :/

    Looking good Joe ! - I too like your idea of using that background as well.

    There are some - West Wall, Austrian and Czechoslovakian Occupation,
    but other than a couple of party pins or cap badges, you are not
    going to get much else in there without more shuffling.........!

    Hey Joe, ( wasn't that a Hendrix tune? )
    How about a Silver wound badge or an Eastern peoples medal to balance out the Italian Africa one?

    To me, using feldgrau wool as a backing seemed natural... that's what the awards would have been worn on, no? If you call At The Front, they will probably give you a scrap of fabric for the price of shipping... they gave me the back of a whole jacket that must have had a measuring or cutting error when being produced.

    I need to do some more research in the eastern peoples medal as well as the west wall, Austrian and Czech occupations medals, too. I have a party badge and a mothers' cross, but I want to keep those separate because they are civilian...

    I am thinking of moving up the wound badge and sandwiching it between the wound badge and general assault badge in my display. What do you folks think?

    I got the wool from atthefront. It was actually from a tunic that they made a mistake on. Instead of throwing out the fabric, they gave it to me. I paid shipping, of course.
