Badges for garde veteran (help needed please)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here are 3 badges for a same veteran in the Garde Korps (During the war, he was at the 2 GRzF).

These badges are they "official" or only for a veteran association ?

Do you know what is the signification of the numbers 25 and 50 (the years he spent in this association ?)

By advance, thank a lot.

The first badge :

Thank you for your answers :cheers:

hi stephan,

a beautiful and fairly complete ensemble depicting a long membership in a veteran's organization! :love:

very fine quality!

i assume the stars are approx. 30mm? that seems to be the usual size, give or take a few mm...

The stars are 46 mm...

Best regards

Stephan

He was "Jahresklasse 1909" and he fought throughout the war (1916 Gefreiter, 1917 Unteroffizier, Februar 1918 Sergenten). Until 1917 he was in the 2 GRzF and then in the "Feld Rekrut Depot" of the 231 Jnfanterie Division. Here are extracts from his Milit?rpass :
