Championships of students/pupils in 1955, second place and champion (Meister).

Note the old national emblems, the flag without hammer and compass, the coat of arms still without compass (Zirkel).

With regards post number 6 and 19 I have a similar badge however its inscribed:

"Immer Bereit Für Frieden und Völksfreundschaft."

Hi Kevin,

there are many different badges with different inscriptions. It is difficult.

For children:

Sei bereit für Frieden und Völkerfreundschaft (10 and 11 years old) > Be prepared for...


Immer bereit für Frieden und Völkerfreundschaft (12 and 13 years old) > Always prepared for...

For the youth:

Sei bereit zur Arbeit und zur Verteidigung des Friedens (14 and 15 years old)

For adults:

Bereit zur Verteidigung des Friedens > Prepared for...


Bereit zur Verteidigung der Heimat

Children and the youth:

It is the time before the DDR do exist. In 1948 it was the SBZ (Sowjetische Besatzungszone = Soviet Occupation Zone).

The town is Neustadt a. Rennsteig in Thuringia.

In lack of paper they used the old documents from the Third Reich, here from the NSRL (Nationalsozialistischer Reichsbund für Leibesübungen).

The swastika on the eagle is present, but revised with a few additional lines.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
