A Second War Badge of the German Regiment (Croatian Army)

Aluminum, die stamped slightly vaulted badge measuring 60mm, lacquered swastika in the center. Unmarked, but known to be made by Zagreb’s "Braća Knaus". In extremely fine condition. Very scarce. Footnote: with the establishment of the Independent State of Croatia in 1941, German minority in Croatia (Apx. 180,000) enjoyed considerable influence on the Croat political and military leadership. As a result, local Croatian Germans were allowed to form a distinctive German-speaking Regiment made up entirely of Germans. Officially, these units were an integral part of the "Croat Home Army" (Domobrans). First such unit was the 1st company of the 16th Regiment, established in Ruma in 1941. Colonel Johann Strecher was a commander of this unit. In 1942, company was expanded into the 1st Jäger Regiment. This trend continued and three more Regiments were established during 1942. Members of the Regiments wore Croat Army uniforms, only distinction being this, so called "German Badge", worn on tunic sewn onto upper section of the left sleeve. With establishment of the SS Division “Prinz Eugen” in 1943, most of the men were transferred from these so called "German Regiments" into the new SS-Division. Illustration taken from the book "JAHREBUCH DER DEUTCHEN VOLKSGRUPPE IN KROATIEN". Also, Illustrated in D. Littlejohn’s "Foreign Legion of the Third Reich", V.3, p. 232; and book by "Barac/Pogacic, Croatian Awards" p.90.
