I've eventually managed to get a hold of one of these things.

Wanted one ever since I saw it in 'Purnell's History of The Second World War' back in the 1970s.

Quality-wise, it's like a Golden Party Badge.............fire-gilded bronze with great enamel work and detailing.

Question is.............does anyone know exactly what this was awarded for?

I know there are Waffenring Mackensen Crosses, an Honour Clasp in Silver. etc. etc., for cavalry veterans, but does anyone know what the award criteria stipulated by the WDK were?

I too would like to learn more about these badges and why they were awarded.
