    Default Gebirgsjäger Regt.98 Remembrance Medal - How many Regiments issued them ?

    Hello Gentlemen,
    Picked up this Gebirgsjäger remembrance badge at the weekend, its the second one I own. Fine-zinc measures 37mm x 46mm issued by 12th Company Gebirgsjäger Regiment 98 reverse has a list of the regiment's Russian Battles 1941 /43. I was wondering, if members know how many of Gebirgsjäger Regiments issued remembrance badges, I know to four, all seem to have been issued late war, perhaps there are a few Gebirgsjäger collectors amongst us may know the total number or have a period picture of some in wear. I've seen them described on German sites so -
    "Gebirgsjäger wearable remembrance badge" - "these wearable remembrance badges were very popular with the mountain troops, worn on the uniform, although not official".

    P.s. - The slight red hue colour on the front comes from the camera, not on medal.
    Cheers

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
