    Hello all. Would someone be kind enough to id this badge please. I've just got back from detecting on the site of an old pow camp. This was 3 inches down. On the reverse are the words "Wernstein Jena" and "DRGM" and some numbers which look like 35269. The numbers are tricky to read so might be wrong. The pin is missing. I've got a suspicion as to what this may be but if anyone can positively id it I'd be very grateful. All the best, Andy.

    It's the silver grade of the Deutsches Reichssportabzeichen [German National Sports Badge]. The "DRL" cypher stands for "Deutscher Reichsausschuss für Leibesübungen" [German National Council for Physical Exercise]. This model of sports badge was introduced in 1935.

    The Wernstein Company of Jena was the manufacturer. (It is the most common manufacturer of these badges.) DRGM stands for Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster [German Nationally Registered Design], followed by the design's registration number 35269.

    No SS connection as such.

    Oh, and the picture is upside down.
