    Would an SS member have an SA sports badge?

    Hi Glenn, yes, this badge was open to other branches of the Party and not just the SA. All were encouraged to win it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Allow me to add that SS men - at least in the pre-war years - were not only allowed to qualify for the SA Sports Badge, but actually required to do so. (Even Himmler himself qualified for the badge.)

    There were exceptions, though, for example for those SS members who were over 50 years of age, who were disabled from war wounds or who suffered from other physical impairments.

    In 1939, the badge was elevated/transformed from being the SA-Sportabzeichen [SA Sports Badge] to being the SA-Wehrabzeichen [roughly SA Defense Badge] and qualifying and re-qualifiying for it was made the basis of all pre- and post-military training. Now, all male Germans eligible for military service of at least 17 years of age were permitted and even "morally obliged" to get it.

    Prost ! Steve.
