Historical Description: German Elephant Order Colonial, also called Elephantenorden (Elephant’s Order). Awarded to all German colonials who, during the First World War, and later in the former German colonies, were acting or serving on behalf of these colonies. The badge was instituted in October 1921 and was to be purchased by the recipient. By 21 November 1936 some 8,000 were issued and it is assumed that later awards could have been obtained during the Nazi period 1937 – 45.
