    You can also find the detailed data on the award criteria here:

    Axis History Forum • View topic - Hitler Youth marksmanship medals

    Go directly to post #7 in that thread (disregard post #2; it contained errors and was corrected by the original poster in post # 7)

    The link to the HJ forum posted by FrankBooth is listed as the source for the data at the AHF thread as well; I just thought I would post this additional link to the AHF as it requires no login to view.

    I have looked just now and the information at AHF is not up to date. On the HJ forum it is much expanded. Just wanted to let you know of this. Badge in post numebr one is the basic shooting badge not the HJ scharfschuze....?
