The Navy and Marine equivalent of the Army of Occupation Medal is the Navy Occupation Service Medal.  To be awarded the Army of Occupation Medal, a service member was required to have performed at least thirty consecutive days of military duty within a designated geographical area of military occupation.  The Army of Occupation Medal was presented with a campaign clasp, denoting either European or Asian service, depending on the region in which occupation service had been performed.  Fair condition.

Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen

The General Assault Badge (German: Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen) was a military decoration awarded during World War II to personnel of the German Army, Waffen-SS and Ordnungspolizei (order police) who supported an infantry attack but were not part of specific infantry units and therefore did not qualify for the Infantry Assault Badge. It was instituted by General Walther von Brauchitsch on 1 June 1940.

The medal was originally designed for presentation to combat engineers, as well as members of the artillery, anti-aircraft and anti-tank who supported infantry units in combat. It could also be awarded to medical personnel attending to battlefield casualties in "close combat conditions". Prior to the introduction of the Tank Destruction Badge, the General Assault Badge could be conferred for the single-handed destruction of tanks or armoured vehicles.

Other determining factors for award:

  • Ineligibility for the Infantry Assault Badge
  • Participation in three infantry or armored attacks on three different days; or
  • Participation in three infantry or armored indirect assaults on three different days.

The badge was made in 'Zink', no marker.  Good condition.
