Product Details

This is a very good reproduction of the World War Two German Eastern Front Medal (Winterschlacht Im Osten), which is also commonly known as the Ostmedaille.

It was instituted in May 1942 to mark the service and hardships faced by German Personnel on the Eastern Front from November 1941 to April 1942. It was also, somewhat darkly, known as the Frozen Meat Medal (Gefrierfleischorden).

Qualification for the medal was by one of the following means:

  • 14 days service in active combat or 60 days in the area in a non-combat role
  • Wounded/killed in Action
  • Injury related to climactic conditions, such as frostbite, that was severe enough to warrant the issue of a wound badge.

Image shows front and rear aspects of the medal.
