If I did understand well this doc the answer is yes.

I am addressing this question only:

Can someone please tell me if SS-Gruppenfuhrer Hermann Fegelein was a re-
cipient of the Anti-Partisan War Badge?

He did not put in for the badge because he proposed, designed, and lobbied extensively for its incorporation.

Thanks, Tom, for the last additions. Updated per today. The mark of 150 is crossed. Total of 152 now.

I've added Uschaf. Kühne, ? / OZAK , as well (per the document).
Steinhauser Columban - very unusual first name !

@all,
there are still unanswered questions on page 19, if you would like to take a look.

@danfcon1,
to my knowledge H. Fegelein wasn't a recipient. I've not seen a photo of him wearing the badge and I couldn't find a reference listing this award for him.
He received the Close Combat Clasp in Silver. That means his combat days with the SS-Kavallerie were counted for this award (no double counting for both awards). Possible only a honorary award during his time as Verbindungsoffizier at the FHQ - but no evidence, and no hint for that.

I stand corrected

re Hermann Fegelein on the partisan badge

In Mark Yerger's Riding East, on page 198, he appears to be wearing the badge.

Sorry for any confusion I may have caused with my previous post.

Would you be able to post that image?
I do not have Fegelein on my list so it's seems very unlikely to my...but never say never!

Hello,

Always happy to see progress this very interesting list.

Here is a new name to add to this list :

Jäger Erich WORM, LW Jäger-Btl. zbV 8, BKAB 11.12.1944

I take advantage of this message to indicate an error of the list : letter S, SCHMIDT Heinrich. This name is mentioned twice. The second registration is correct (with BKAb and BKAs).

Cordial greetings.

Polux

Hello Polux,

thanks ! As we try to add sources to verify and confirm the recipients wherever possible, may I ask what's your source for Worm ?
We also know this field is very difficult and complex. Therefore we (that's Bergmolch and me since the re-start together with Marcus ) decided to take recipients on the list also where a source or 100% confirmation couldn't be found yet. Those will be classified as "in research" and will be marked blue or red depending on the status of evidence / base of research.
(process of re-asking for recipients not yet clear is ongoing)
So, even a small hint or piece of info helps to go on with further research.

Heinrich Schmidt - one "red one" down :D
new entry
Schmidt, Heinrich, Leutnant d. Gendarmerie [Gendarmerie Lothringen], SSPF z.b.V. - BKAb (15.10.1944) - BKAs (05.11.1944)
He is mentioned / confirmed twice now. Same source question here.
Just to get a wider range of coverage (and I will asking "naive" questions first before attempting to do a basic research what I'm looking for) :
Is it known to you, Polux, that this SSPF z.b.V. was connected to the Lorraine region ?

Thanks for any addition
Best regards
Bernd
