As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
the envelope being tucked in behind the wreath. In this way it
looks like the envelope is coming through the wreath - the
way the tank does on a Panzerkampfabzeichen. It's your
design idea, if you choose to go this route.........
i need to get my posts up lol.

Happy to be of service to your endeavor!
I think I preferred the other version Steve, I like the idea of it having a swas to keep it looking more like a real award as you said The GAB style oak leaves look good, I've used my MS badge for the basis of my sketches. I'll scan them at work tomorrow.
Update; the lid is stripped, and repainted. I'm pretty happy with it, not a bad looking M40. Tomorrow I will paint the badge
I found a swastika under the paint on the front of the lid, Todd and I think probably this was a biker lid in it's time. This thing has had, and will continue to have, a very interesting existence
