    Hello Friends,
    I wasn't quite sure where to post this...Moderators feel free to move this if called for...
    A rather scarce -And Numbered!- Bergwacht Badge...Mountain Rescue/Recovery...
    My Alpine Grouping is coming together nicely, -one piece at a time-, and I look forward to the arrival of this interesting new addition to my display...Hope you like it as well...
    cheers, Glenn

    Interesting little badge and one that has Been there! A shame we'll never know it's almost certainly fascinating prior life's stories! Nice find!

    Thanks Bob, much appreciated...There are several differing classes/versions into the Postwar Period, so I've been learning bit by bit about them myself...I think I did good for 30 Euros total as I haven't found any numbered ones anywhere near that price...
    cheers, Glenn

    It's post-war. This is the Bergwacht-Ehrenzeichen in Silber [Bergwacht decoration in Silver], awarded for 25 years of service.

    Thanks for the Info, Andreas! I figured that it was early Post-War...According to the link provided, this particular version was awarded starting in 1950 for 25 years of Service...It is a Bavarian State Award- I did not know that, at first I thought it might be Austrian...
    cheers, Glenn

    You're welcome, Glenn. I knew I had seen the badge somewhere before and eventually found it in my copy of the 1996 version of the Bavarian Red Cross' regulations on awards and decorations.

    I see that the current version of those regulations is even available online in .PDF format:

    I am sure they are of interest to you and perhaps other members as well, as they include photographs of all awards and decorations of the BRC.

    (The various grades of the Bergwacht-Ehrenzeichen are illustrated on page 50.)
