Recently sold on Ebay UK – the badge of the 1th Grenadiers’ Division / 4th Infantry thereafter
A classic - K&S – 1943 / 44 – type without K&S stamp - non combat version
Although we discussed the Grenadiers’ badge in the past, I think that these pictures are worth posting as they allow to study / see materials the badge is made of.
I am not sure of the significance of the red “podkladka”. From the book on 4 Infantry division I could not establish it with 100% certainty. There were;
a) Engineers Troop / Company with red and black collars
b) 12/13/14 Medical Companies with cherry and blue collars
