German Demyansk Shield (Armelschild Demjansk) 1942

The German Demyansk Shield (Ärmelschild Demjansk) is a German military award instituted on April 25, 1943 to commemorate troops who fought in the Demyansk pocket. Requirements for Heer and auxiliary units included honorable service in the besieged area for 60 days or wound or frost-bite in the besieged area, for Luftwaffe — 50 combat or supply missions over the besieged and surrounding area. The shield was die struck and produced in silver washed zinc and later in plain zinc. Two variations of the aircrafts’ propeller under the swords exist, as some shields show it curved while others show it straight.
