Bewährungsabzeichen des V. Armeekorps

Recommended Posts

Here is a nice Wehrpass with the Bewährungsabzeichen des V. Armeekorps entered... I assume he was then told it did not count because in a later awards entry it is left out.....

Assuming because he was active Wehrmacht and the award had been banned in 1935. Interesting.

Just for interest's sake here's an award document for this award.

Hello:

I am surprised to see the document also signed by the Soldiers Council ( Soldatenrat). they were oftentimes told to go somewhere else by returning, from frontline duty units.

That is a very nice doc... 37th Füsiliers is one of Regts I actively collect, have quite a few documnts to them... did not realise they had a Freikorps.

I have a similar one to the 50th IR, ....

Thats probably just at the time where they were being banned... will check when I get home when the Wehrpass was issued...

Or maybe he did not care (at least for the picture), "I earned, so I wear it."
