    Default Sports badge collection, finally complete!

    Since collecting some of the easier to find sports badges around a year ago I've been bugged by the difficulty of finding decent examples of the 2 most rare examples, namely the SA badge for war wounded and the most holy grail, the SA sports badge in gold.

    Well finally the last piece dropped into place yesterday with the arrival of a beautiful CHR LAUER. The empty space in my display case was doing my head in so i'm very relieved to be able to say 'done' to sports badges for the time being.

    Please enjoy the images!

    Cheers everyone!

    Here's a closer shot of the SA War Wounded if anyones interested. It's an M1/100. I've yet to see one that hasn't lost most or all of the bronze finish.

    What is the difference between sa and drl sports badges and what are they awarded for ? Where solders encouraged or forced to try to gain this award ?

    Thanks
