Dutch World War II medals and memorabilia

Recommended Posts

I am researching a book on the resistance in the Netherlands during the Second World War. My mother was a resistance fighter and I have a photo of her with an armband that is supposed to identify her as having been in the underground. Is there any other documentation/memorabilia/medals in relation to underground members? I'd also like to know if anyone has seen medals or insignia for the NSB, the Dutch National Socialist movement during WWII. Many thanks.

The Stirnpanzer Forum has a quite large section on NSB awards:

Pm me the details of your mother and I may be able to help. I have a lot of contacts in the former Dutch resistance.

Hi

My father-in-law was also in the Dutch Underground. Unfortunately he did not talk of it much. I have a plaque that was used to raise funds for the underground. It become the symbol of the dutch underground and was hung proudly in their homes.

The orange lion is representative of the Dutch royal family
