    I have just been given this badge.

    As you can see from previous posts, I am a very amateur collector. I know it was given to a woman... but why?

    That was the third version of the badge, if not mistaken.

    The Deutsches Frauenwerk was an assigned organization to the NS-Frauenschaft,
    known as "angeschlossener Verband", which has its own badge. It came into being after
    it was granted by Hess. The first were available in August 1936 (Rundschreiben nr. 50/36 from
    July 17, 1936), published in the official periodical Nachrichtendienst der Reichsfrauenführung
    (page 322). In an earlier issue it was said the badges were available in June, but that was not
    quite correct.
    "Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
    zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916

    Right Wilhelm, posted the wrong badge, was supposed to be this one. Sorry for the slip up.
    This is the 3rd type.

    And seeing as the first badge posted was indeed Frauenwerk, my post is null and void.......
