    Now, before you say "that's not a gebirgs edelweiss badge - they never wore those on the cap nor visor - have a closer look at this famous image that appeared in SIGNAL and on postcards ( one of which I have )

    Cheers, Dan

    I may be wrong Dan but the SA Gruppe Hochland does have the swas , I dont think the SS Gruppe does

    Then again I may be talking rubbish

    Hopefully someone will confirm

    It may be period, but I would say its a civilian or souvenir pin.

    Quite likely Pete, my point was that as per the photo, these ones were worn too.
