    this doesnt have anything to do with this thread, but i just picked up a really cool original photo of feld marschall wilhelm Keitel at an Odessa parade sporting a knights cross(maybe oak leaves?). I dont know who the man on the left is, but its a cool photo to add to my collection. What are the bars called that they are holding? i dont know the specific name for them.

    The other man is the Romanian Marshal Ion Antonescu. Both men are holding their Marshal's Batons.

    ahhh Romanian marshal! Thank you very much. Ya i was just wondering if there was a specific name for the marshal batons....but probably not. Thanks for the info on Antonescu as i have seen him in other photos with keitel.

    No; there is no special name. In German, this item is called Marschallstab, which also simply means "Marshal's Baton".

    I just found another badge that is similar to the one mentioned !!!!!

    It is in the 'e-militaria.com sales website, called an
    'Army Championships Commemorative badge'.

    The badge itself reads: 'Heeres Meisterschaften - Kassel 2.6.8. 1933'
    It is of bright metal, eight sided, and has the same profile bust.

    Maybe this is the one.

    It's not that pathetic - I would probably have bought one and done the same, most likely.

    I actually SAW this type of pin today for sale at the 'Toronto Militaria Show' ! !
    It's strange how these things pop up when you aren't really looking for them !
    I had never seen one before, only on that site.

    I forgot to ask the guy how much he wanted ......
