Show your Nordfront-Kreuz!

Article about: Any photos?

    What concerns me about this one is that whoever he is he obviously had little regard for dress regulations with reference to the wearing of orders. Look where the Nordfront Kreuz is and what about the EKII just pinned to his jacket without a ribbon, in the wrong place and with an EKII button hole ribbon?

    I believe this was done in some studio photos, the relocation of awards so they would show up better in photos. He wears the 2nd class ribbon in his button hole, per-regulation with the cross placed higher so it would be picked up in the photo. It's hard to say for sure, but it appears to be period to me. But I could be wrong.

    Looks to be an SS Paratrooper?
    He has a Fallschirmschützenabzeichen (Paratrooper's badge) and the cufflink "Fallschirmjäger" - Definitely a paratrooper.
    Do not confuse this with the Fallschirmspringerabzeichen des Heeres and later Fallschirmschützenabzeichen des Heeres (Paratrooper's badge of the Army)
    The minimum criteria was the completion of parachute training with 5 triumphant air drops.

    Probably a SS private from the SS-Fallschirmjägerbataillon 500 or 600

    I did notice the Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen des Heeres, which would mean he was in the pre-war army paratroopers as the badge was discontinued in 1939 when the Luftwaffe gained control over paratrooper units. I thought it was a very interesting photo as I don't capture photos from the net often, but I thought this one was worth it.

    Sorry if I missed something here but surely the badge in the photo is the LW badge with the swastika in the diving eagle's talons not the Heer badge with the eagle and swastika at the top of the wreath and no swastika in the talons of the diving eagle.

    Yes Mark you are correct, I have another photo which shows a Army para badge, I should have checked my mistake.

    Sorry.

    Great items.. the design is awesome.

    So there are 12 different of them but they all represent the same thing? Not 12 different classes or something just different maker designs?
    Hi, there are three different crosses in similiar design:
    1. Pohjoisrintamamerkki = Nordfront-Kreuz
    2. Lapinrintamamerkki = Lapplandfront-Kreuz
    3. Jäämerenrintamamerkki = Eismeerfront-Kreuz

    and each of them have a few variants, with white or black enamel at the center, and different dates. Also manufacturing versions of Nordfornt-Kreuz are known, i.e. with open or closed "4".

    From these is the Nordfront-Kreuz easier to find, Eismeerfront ist most difficult.

    The crosses are well described here:

    In the middle row two variations of Nordfront-Kreuz with black enamel. Please look at the "4" in dates and the lion in coat of arms
