    Default Heer Flak Badges marked L/5?

    Hi guys,

    From what I have researched, army flak badges with various L/# marks should be avoided. I am correct in thinking that L/5 is Hermann Wernstein? Did they make these badges?

    If anyone has an original L/5 I would be interested in seeing it.

    Thanks,
    Mo

    Hi Mo.

    L/5 is not Wernstein. Wernstein were given the PKZ number '5' and their LDO number is L/17. The lowest LDO number is L/10 and it was given to Deschler so there should be no original badge marked L/5.
    I don't think Wernstein made the Heer Flakkampfabzeichen, I certainly haven't been able to find any examples. Some Flak badges were purchased in LDO cellophane packets but any badge marked with an LDO number should be viewed with suspicion.

    I think I will pass on the badge in question then. I was not able to get any pictures of it but the FlaK 36 details were too soft and with the whole L/5 thing obviously isn't right.

    Thanks for your help again!
