    Hmm.. Possibly. Thanks for the suggestion, Jerry
    Have you guys seen more than one WB in wear at one time?
    Only on a German General, though I can't remember who. And he did because he had them from both wars whilst the SS man is too junior and too young to get away with doing it, so not another WB. It looks like a Allgemeine Sturmabzeichen to me. the only other one it might be is the ritter badge or less likely the SA sports abzeichen.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Interesting...this is certainly a mystery! I wonder if a Spanish wound badge is ruled out.
    I'm having trouble with the general assault badge theory. When looking at the shape, it just doesn't quite match the one in the photo. Also, it appears to be black in color.

    I have asked Bill T.,our moderator here, to take a gander when he gets the chance. I also hope Mr.HPL2008 gives his respected opinion.
    Stuff like this will drive me nuts if I don't get to the bottom of it....and I don't even own this image!

    Again, too junior and possibly too young. If you had the spanish version it has been argued that you might get the higher grades in the spanish version but you never got to wear to both types at the same time.

    It the Allgemeine Sturmabzeichen, I don't understand why you can't see that, it looks pretty clear to me and makes the most sense!

    The badge in question can't be an Infanterie Sturmabzeichen or GAB as it's too small to be either of these, and in the case of the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen, doesn't have an eagle at the top. It's actually nearly the same size as the Wound Badge above it and that, along with the hint of its cut out shape within a wreath makes me think it's probably a DRL Sports badge, as this is almost the same size as the Wound Badge.

    Regards, Ned.

    It looks to be a DRL/DRA Sports badge.

    I'm leaning toward Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen, too.

    Look at the top. It dips down, inclines back to the top at the head, then dips down again.

    Also, look at the detailing of the border. It matches the Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen, IMO.
