    Hello there,

    It is my opinion that the badge in question is 100% authentic and original, French manufactured and referred to as a "Bacqueville" badge.

    William is talking about the Bacqueville badges.

    Tread with caution with these. There is no proof they are original wartime manufactured and equally no proof they aren't. It's an individual choice, you either like them and believe in them or you don't. Debate over these badges has raged for years.
    The company only made Kriegsmarine badges but bizarrely didn't make the Minesweeper badge, the most common of all Kriegsmarine awards.........

    I don't have any in my collection and don't envisage adding any.

    I am of the same mind as Adrian.
