    i think its really charming, as thats what it is a charm bracelet , it appears to be from a girl in the female RAD{or at least there a badge from the service}. dont quote me on it , im usually pulled up, but i really like it, nice one, and also one to cherish and keep.

    Typical German veterans piece but a very strange combination on this piece, a West wall medal, Memel medal , but i don't know how many girls in the RAD won the Knights Cross with oakleaves !!!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    11 members of the RAD won the Ritterkreuz and Eichelaub whilst attached to Wehrmacht and Waffen SS Units.

    None of them were girls.
