 Cześć wszystkim !

Szukam informacji o tej odznace. Czy jest to coś związanego z opieką społeczną? A może z kapelanem wojskowym?



Hi everyone!

I am looking for information about this badge. Is there anything related to social care? Or maybe with a military chaplain?

Well, the observe seems to be that of the silesian eagle, and the city of Breslau being engraved on the back would confirm that as its place or origin. It was clearly a pin back, if you look closely at the reverse, you can start to notice a difference in texture in the middle, this is probably where the original pin was set, but, as the grey marks prove, it was later replaced with a solder and a pin, thus obscuring some of the engraving. The A. K... is probably the owners name, and the Wehr. leads me to believe that this is a second world war pin, but I could be wrong. The 6 could possibly be his membership number, or number of badge, but "Truppen fur sorge" is probably a veterans care, or advocacy group. Most likely it is just one of the numerous veteran associations that were created after the war, but this one with a particular focus on medical or some other form of veteran care.

I hope I was atleaste of some help.

Interesting badge I've never seen before. It is for those involved in caring for troops in need of medical attention, and the engraving gives the area as Wehrkreis III Breslau.

the badge is interesting, but the engraving confuses me in that breslau was designated wehrkreis VIII rather than wehrkreis III, which is berlin. perhaps different during the weimar era??


p.s. designation 'breslau III' is valid, but not sure if it should be used in conjunction with 'wehrkreis'

    • 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.
