That's a nice find, probably been hidden away for years in a draw.

Now I know next to nothing about WWII German stuff so this is perhaps a silly question but what would he have received the larger badge on his pocket for? Not the fuer Leistungen badge, the other one. It's just that I didn't think it was a badge worn by the HJ but my father-in-law had the same.

It’s the SA bit that’s confusing me, SA as in Sportabzeichen or SA as in brown shirts but then after reading wiki just now I see it was available to anyone doing sport under control of the SA from 1935 onwards.

Thanks for the explanation mate, as he’s wearing it on his RAD uniform it explains why I have one from my wife’s family.

Hermann Diederichs was killed at Stalingrad although the date given for his death is the general one used when the actual date of his death is unknown but was after the pocket was formed or when they are listed as missing - 01-01-1943.

As in Brownshirts, I suppose he reached a certian age and qualified for it as HJ was no doubt under control of the party and SA would be the next progression?
