If I were to compare the Grunwald badge to a military counterpart from another country, I would point to the U.S. Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB), with the difference that unlike the latter, the Grunwald badge was not limited to infantry, but could be granted to other services as well. Still, the direct participation in combat was the necessary condition. Similarly, just like the CIB, which was normally not granted to the ranks above colonel, but could be conferred to a general on an honorary basis, the Grunwald badge could be bestowed upon generals, and in that case it was made of a silver rather than bronze metal, although that was never formally established, as far as I know.

The Grunwald badge was worn on the left pocket of the uniform.

    • 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.
