    Nick, You've an Austrian Fatherland Front Badge (Vaterländische Front Mitgliedsabzeichen).   Some claim there are political party membership pins while others say they had several grades representing different responsibilites in the party.  Some are just the center device surrounded by the party's motto, some have an open wreath surrounding the cross, some have white enamel edged with red crosses, some are the same with devices between the arms, of the latter types some lack the center roundel.....   Many types, seem to recall an early BDOS [or similar] journal contains an article describing them.

    On-line sources provide more info on the party and it's insignia.

    Would really like some expert help. I have accidentally come across something which I believe is from the first Austrian Republic. Could any of the members shed some light?


    Much thanks for any assistance.
