    So just silver and bronze for these? Thanks again Ralph! It must be obvious of my little knowledge on these. So his silver just took on a gold hue with age and patina?
    Hello Phil,
    the two types of Infantry Assault badges that were awarded were the SILVER class which was not a grade but was awarded to Infantry as we know them. i.e. the poor PBI who walked everywhere or got a lift in a truck if they were lucky.
    The BRONZE class were awarded to Panzer Grenadiers or armoured infantry.
    All the best

    Nice badge you got there. The first one is always the most special. These (as well as the PAB and Allgemeines) are quite addicting.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Hi Phil

    The qualifications were as follows...

    The silver Infanterie Sturmabzerichen was instituted on December 20, 1939 by the commander of the OKH, Walther von Brauchitsch, and was awarded to infantry soldiers according to one of the following criteria:

    To have taken part in three or more infantry assaults.
    To have taken part in three or more infantry counter-attacks.
    To have taken part in three or more armed reconnaissance operations.
    To have engaged in hand-to-hand combat in an assault position.
    To have participated on three separate days in the restitution of combat positions.

    The bronze Infanterie Sturmabzeichen was instituted on June 1, 1940. It was awarded to motorized/ Mechanized Infantry troops according to the following criteria:

    To have taken part in three or more motorized infantry assaults.
    To have taken part in three or more motorized infantry counter-attacks.
    To have taken part in three or more motorized armed reconnaissance operations.
    To have been engaged in hand-to-hand combat in motorized assault positions.
    To have participated on three separate days in the restitution of a motorized combat position.

    PS>
    The word "Grade" has several meanings such as rank, level, degree, etc.
    - BUT -
    It also means classification, class, type, kind, etc.

    So, using "Class" (Silver Class) or "Grade" (Bronze Grade) when describing an ISA is acceptable.
