Historical Description: Designed by Norwegian illustrator and Nasjonal Samling member Harald Damsleth, the Front Fighters Badge was instituted in October 1943 by decree of Norwegian leader Vidkun Quisling. It was awarded to all Norwegian personnel, both male and female, who served on the Eastern Front during the Second World War. Initially produced in both metal and silver, production was shifted to zink versions as the former materials became scarce.
