A 1942 Italian-Croatian Legion Officer’s Badge

A 1942 Italian-Croatian Legion Officer’s Badge - in gilded bronze and enamels, by S. Johnson, Milano, 37.5xx (w) x 42.08mm (h), pin and catch assembly post 1945 repaired, otherwise in extremely fine condition and very rare. Italian-Croatian Legion was established in 1942, composed (mostly) of Italian Officers and Croatian enlisted men and NCO’s, and was trained in Italy, with intention of being sent to the Russian Front. As Partisan’s Forces in Yugoslavia grew and threatened Axis interests however, these units were sent to fight Tito’s Partisans; with the capitulation of Italy the Legion was reorganized into Croatian units and its Italian-related insignia was disallowed.
