    Default German Veterans medal?

    Hello everyone,
    is this medal a veteran medal....
    the back is plain, and no markings..











    With victory, the people will be grateful to us and the bourgeoisie will come forward to flatter us. It has been proved that the enemy cannot conquer us by force of arms.

    Hi Darren, yes some kind of unofficial Veterans association type medal. Not one I have seen before, but it is a bit outside of my collecting interests.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Darrin, I like it, very interesting. I've never seen one either. If Ade hasn't seen one, then there must not be very many of them. Do some more research of post war unit awards on the internet, you should be able to find it.

    The establishment of our socialist system has opened the road leading to the ideal society of the future, but to translate this ideal into reality needs hard work.

    To be honest, I don't rate it as high as that. Better to spend your cash on something actually wartime.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This type of thing showing an Iron Cross was very common after WW1 and in trench art , as with Ade i've never seen anyhting like this as part of the Nachlass of a WW2 Veteran or at any Veteran meetings in Germany , most of the badges worn are 57 awards and Divisonal signs /tac signs etc.

    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

    We must thoroughly clear away all ideas among our cadres of winning easy victories through good luck, without hard and bitter struggle, without sweat and blood.
