Edelweiss - Type 4 Heer silver wire
Quality Reproduction Edelweiss Trade Badge for Gebirgsjager
On May 1939 the High Command authorized wear of a the Edelweissbadge for Mountain Troop personnel to be worn on the upper right sleeve of the service dress and field uniforms.
The design of the badge was based on a badge worn by the WWI German Alpine Corps. The badge was originally designed on a blue/green badge cloth base, but in 1940 this was change to a field-grey wool base to match that of the field uniforms.
The trade badge was originally to be removed if the solder transferred out of his Mountain Troop unit but this was largely ignored and was reversed in 1944 and as long as the solder had experience serving with a Gebirgsjager unit then they were entitled to wear the patch.
This is the Officers version of the patch and is made from hand embroidered bullion wire on a field grey wool base.
