Reiter-Abzeichen.

Post by tigre » 22 Sep 2012 12:52

Hello to all :D; here goes some photos and a question..........

Rider Badge.

Here we see a German officer during an instruction with a machine gun MG-34, the official wears the Rider Badge (Reiter-Abzeichen); can anyone provide more details about the criteria for this award?
