Sniper Badges

The sniper badge was instituted in September, 1944 and was initially awarded to snipers for a specific number of confirmed kills. In early 1945, Hitler decreed than any troops (officially trained as snipers or not) were eligible for the badge. In practice, the badge was rarely worn due to the certainty of being executed if the soldier was captured and identified as a sniper.
Worn on the lower right sleeve.
