Here is a neat photo that was in a little DJ hunting album i picked up recently. I was always curious how these was worn. Does anyone else have a photo showing these in wear?

Cheers,

HD MARLEY,
Thank you for a great picture of the hunting badge and how it is worn.

I have an old German hunting diary and it included a photo of the hunting lodge. The great thing in the photo is how they had displayed the D J Flag on the side of the lodge.

Sincerely,
HUBERTUS

Thank you for the kind words, I thought it was a nice photo. In the whole album, there is 2 lodges i think? But here are a few more photos of interest i think.

Cheers,

H D MARLEY,

Thank you for the great picture show. Truly a look at all the high brass for all of the WW11 hunting hirschfangers.

I'm with Rich, a fantastic photo album, many thanks for showing,it's the first I've ever seen a game wardens badge in wear,on the fourth photo down from Hubertus's picture I'm sure that is a portrait of old Fatso, I should think this is a group of high ranking officials.

Thanks

Gary, my first quick look on pic#4 let rise the same thoughts first but a closer look let me doubt. I think it is the unknown owner of the house ore one of his ancestors.

Concerning the wear of the game wardens badge: It for sure is one of the legit variants of wearing it but only the second most variant. Mostly the badge was (and the today´s one is) worn attached to (on) the left breast pocket.

Regards,

Thanks for the wearing information, I had assumed it would be on the jacket somewhere but never new for sure, though the way this guy wears in on his hat is very nice.

Your probably right about the portrait, I only took a quick look, I think the guy is a little thin for Herman, still quite a resemblance though.

Cheers

I looked at this portrait and it really does look like the Reich's Master of the Hunt and always hunting for more titles.

During this period I'm sure the "authorized" proper wear was on the hat. No other authorized way that I'm aware of during this period. It's always a possibility that some didn't adhere to the proper wearing of this badge. Although it does makes sense to wear it on the jacket. Today as Wotan stated it's different. Also, when these badges were lost for whatever reason lol, the badge was retired, meaning the number was discontinued.

H D Marley,

Attached are the front and rear photos of three game warden badges. Notice they are not all solid medal on the back. I do not know if they are all correct as I talked to Houston about them at one of the MAX shows and as I recall he said some of this type of badges were reproduced. Maybe he will give us some answers on this subject.

Sincerely,
HUBERTUS

The one i posted is a solid back variation. I also have a stamped or hollow back version as well. Both are marked on the reverse.

There was a few popping up on a auction site with green cloth backing attached that was deemed fake my many plus each one had the same serial number as well???

Hubertus, I sent you a email and PM my friend!~

PS--With a jewlers loop, the photo does look like ol HG himself hanging on the wall.

HDMARLEY, Great pics! What a beautiful house this is!! Do you know where these were taken? Wonder if it still stands? I see they even have a painting of the "ultimate hunter"(Goering) in that one room! LOL...Kevin.


It's ALL in the DETAILS!!.......

Interesting that the man is not wearing an official Hunting or Forestry uniform with the badge. As I have stated before this tends to support the idea that this badge is in fact a Hunting license badge. The high numbers also would match the numbers found on hunting licenses. Perhaps there is a matched set out there somewhere.

If I recall these type "Service Badges or Badge of Service" as it was called during the period was only authorized to wear by the Berufsjager/Professional Hunters and Jagdaufseher/Game Wardens. And was only authorized to wear on the hat as I stated before. So yes they would have to be licensed. Also we now call it the DJ Badge, but during the period they were known as the Hunters Guard or/protection Badge. Best!
