Ehrenkrueuz der Deutschen Mutter / Mothers Cross

Recommended Posts

Hi Brian

Here is the announcment for the Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter that appeared in the 1 Jan 1939 edition of the Uniformen-Markt, this was a bi-monthly publication put out by the Uniform/Medals/Insignia/Swords and Daggers Industries in Germany.

This was one of those interesting German medals that had enormous political significance. In 1940 it specifically was exempted from metal restrictions by a FuehrerBefehl, as it was denoted a "combat status" decoration. Thus, it continued to be awarded throughout the war, after most LS medals had been suspended.

Hello,

 Groups with the Mother's Cross must be quite rare. I've not seen one in "real life".

Very nice bar, thank you for posting it.

Regards

Brian
