This was the basic wound badge for the first wound in combat, made famous havng been worn by Adolf Hitler along with his Iron Cross, 1st class, the only medals he ever wore. The higher grades were in silver and gold finish.

The parcel has arrived - at the time you indicated.

The sword lives up to expectations and looks even better than on the website. The detail and etching is superb.

Thanks so much for your help and the extra information.
