    Default GERMAN MEMBERSHIP STICKPIN lighthouse with national colors

    I have just bought this sticpin, and mu id is that it is a GERMAN VETERAN STICKPIN GERMAN MEMBERSHIP STICKPIN lighthouse with national colors, more comments are welcome.

    Germany created veteran organizations to assist WWI soldiers with matters regarding housing, medical care and other causes. Like other organizations during the Third Reich, affiliation to the Nazi party was a good idea and often times mandatory.

    The design of the stick pin consists of a shield with an enameled front. A lighthouse is placed on top of a rock. The bottom section has three vertical lines that represent the national colors.
    On the reverse: Ges. Gesch (Ges Gesch)
    Ges Gesch is an abbreviation for gesetzlich geschützt. Gesetzlich translates from German to English as legal, legitimate, by law. Geschützt translates from German to English as protected or sheltered. Ergo the translation means: legally protected.

    This is from the Kyffhaeuserbund, and it's not a Lighthouse, it's the Kyffhaeuser Memorial...Nice original pin.
    cheers, Glenn
