    Default help for identification

    Hello,
    I have several German object (medals, iron cross, etc) that I received from my grand father. He was a Canadian Caporal who served in the second war.

    I think I have identified correctly most of the object but for some of them I don't have a clue.

    Can you help me?


    Thank you so much (Sorry for my English, I'm French Canadian...)

    Thank you for your help Nick. Do you have a link you can share with me? I don't find it on the net? Is this something common? I don't find it anywhere?

    Thanks,

    Myriam

    This type of badge is affectionately known as a "Tinnie"

    You can search either Hitler Youth sites or look up Third Reich militaria dealers who often stock these items.

    Actually looking at the back of it, it could be a small plaque as a Tinnie usually has a pin.
