This is an early example in bronze, with a short length of original ribbon. It was the basic gallantry award for front line service and anti-partisan combat personnel and ranks under the Iron Cross, 2nd class, and some 6,500,000 were awarded.

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.
