Hello all,
Here's my oval variant of the nurse's badge by C.T.D. I believe it's for a floor nurse. I also have one with black border which i think is for a wardmaster. I love these organizational badges. That teno stickpin is tops!

Pete ..do you have one of the KdF pins? I don't imagine that there are many of these around.

Tom,
Yes I do, mine has a broken pin, I'll dig it out (on my Kreigsmarine display, somewhere) and post a pic. I always thought it was something to do with coastal art. as well, but the cogwheel?

Pete

TKissinger,- the green & white enameled stickpin you posted with the initials "DKW", is the logo of the German Automobile manufacturing firm of DKW, they also made motorcycles. DKW = Dampfe-Kraft-Wagen (steam powered vehicle).

I like the oddball organizations -

Here's one most books show as "unidentified". It's for Autobahn officials.

I didn't know what it was myself until I saw a photo with the design mounted on top of an Autobahn administrative building. I was lucky and dug up the grainy photo I first saw it in.

Excellent detective work Stephen, I sometimes find that's what this hobby is all about. Spotting the clues hidden away some where waiting to be found.

Bill,
I agree wholeheartedly, welldone guys, just wish I had more to share. I'll have to dig out the rest of my DRK's.

Cheers
Don

I don't have any problems with it, the pin is a little oversized, but I've seen that several times before.

Don, thanks, my wife takes good care of me.
Thanks also for posting your RKK pin. I don't think anyone will mind seeing another. It's good to view the various pin attachment methods.

Here's my other Christmas present.

Just look at the detailed texture on the horns! Very nice badge.

And very clear pictures by the way. Thanks for the look.

Kursk,

Thanks for the info, I had been wondering about exactly what the purpose of these badges were.

Cone states that they (at least, the Robert Ley one featured in his publication) were issued to the crews. However, I had wondered whether they were tourist items sold to the passengers.

Cheers
Don

Ian,
some nice pieces there, thanks for posting them.

Pete,
Thanks. It says Kreis Jena-Stadtroda & is marked with a manufacturs symbol which has been suggested could be William Hobacher.....

I have another of these which is totally unmarked on the reverse. However the distinct pattern in the pebbling under the red enamel has the same faults, so must have come from the same die.

Cheers
Don

Joe, the one with the DAF cogwheel was obtained on a rotational basis by DAF men working as labourers on the boat or when in drydock..

I have had one with the KDF symbol as well..
