I somehow had managed to miss this thread until now. Super interesting info on both the 'marching pin' and the cross. Both new to me and both very nice looking IMO.
The 'kampfkameraden' design is thought provoking in light of later events.
Here's an interesting photo of twelve variations of the Northern Front Cross that I found in an old post on Wehrmacht Awards:
Will post some more info about these variations later (its time for bed).
Thanks to Kemi for spurring me on...
Great to see these very scarce badges .
We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
Always a little further : it may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea...
