    Turkish Badge?


    Recommended Posts

    Can anyone tell me whether the badge shown below is Turkish, please? I have had it for many years, without knowing its true identity. It is die-cast, in brass, 98mm high, with bend-over fasteners E-W. Obviously some naval connection, but, possibly coastal artillery?

    Thanks for any suggestions, in advance,

    May be inspired by it, it looks a bit like one, but the artillery makes me think of the fellows who kept the Bosphorus all choked up. Isn't there a major reference for Turkish medals?

    What about those two German warships that were sent in to Turkish service at the beginning of the war, crew and all? SMS Emden was one of them, wasn't it? I don't think its likely, but its possible this is a variant woundbadge for this. You could always ask in the wound badge section for what inspired the German naval wound badge as well, it might provide some ideas.
