    Thanks for the welcome but I will let some other members or experts comment before I decide this is a fake.

    Is it true these were never issued during the first world war, but instituted after, with the first badges for WW1 being issued in the early years of hitlers regime??

    Hi Tony, the badge was instituted on March 3rd 1918. They were issued, but with it coming out so late, few men got them. The vast majority took years after the end of the war to get theirs.

    Cheers, Ade.
