U-boat War Badge, 1939.First instituted during WWI, the badge was awarded to crews who had completed three patrols.The Nazi Germany badge, awarded after two patrols, was similar to the WWI one with the German Eagle and swastika replacing the crown and a more modernized submarine facing towards the left.Although the completion of two war patrols might seem a lowly requirement, a typical U-boat war cruise would often run into months at a time, with the crew exposed to constant danger.
Anti-Partisan badge Himmler was so pleased with the new badge that he expressed the desire to personally give out the gold grade to those who qualified for it.
