Title High Seas Fleet badge
Nationality German
Period c 1941-45
Sold

This was introduced by Admiral Raeder, who was C-in-C, German Navy, and it is marked on the reverse 'ADOLF BOCK // AUSF.SCHWERIN.BERLIN'. To qualify for this award, 12 weeks' service on a battleship or cruiser was needed, which could be reduced if the recipient had been wounded during the cruise.

This is an early example, made of tombak with most of its original finish, viz the gilt wreath and the oxidised silver face of the ship.

The condition is excellent.

The knot has arrived safely and it looks great thank you.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
