    "Holders' Certificate

    As per order of the Corps Headquarters VI. Army Corps
    of 7/6/20, journal no. II a 113 6.20
    the Musketier Kurt Juskowiak
    has been awarded the

    Iron Cross 2nd Class
    (on the black-and-white ribbon)

    Breslau, 12 June 1920
    "



    The traditional term Musketier was still used in WW1 as a rank designation for the lowest-rank basic privates in the line infantry.
    "Black-and-white ribbon" means it was the combatants' decoration; the reversed-color ribbon for the much rarer non-combatant EK2 was referred to as "weißes Band" [white ribbon].

    Depends on what you mean; do you mean physically handled or heard of it?

    Anyway, the Deutsches Frontkämpfer-Abzeichen des Weltkrieges 1914-1918 [= "German Front Fighters' Badge of the World War 1914-1918"] was one of the Weimar era's numerous unofficial decorations for WW1 veterans

    By the way, this document was on the forum before (See: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/photos...n-help-120195/ ); did you buy it?

    Thank you for this explanation

    I am considering to buy this package of one-man docs together with his Godet & Son EK2 (1914)

    My 2nd question about the frontkämpfer-badge was because I´ve never seen this badge (even in internet) and I hoped that may be someone has some picture to show... Or even the badge to sell...
