    Hello everyone,

    Can any Forum members help identify the Norwegian badge illustrated? I have also included a picture of a medal awarded for service during WW2 and some form of registration document.

    All suggestions will be well received!

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    Do you happen to have a picture of this particular badge in use? I have never seen a picture of it in use. I'd also love to hear about your relatives

    I see that all of the information has been provided already, but to add a bit:
    The medal is "Deltagermedaljen" or Participation medal(Proper name for it is Defence Medal 1940-1945).
    I am pretty sure the badges were manufactured in Norway shortly after the liberation
    Best Regards
