German Army Paratroopers Metal jump badge
Qualification for this badge was 6 training jumps
This Army paratroopers version (Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen des Heeres) was introduced (1 September 1937), with the swastika relocated to the top of the wreath and surmounted by a smaller upright eagle.
On 4 October 1936 the army ordered the institution of its own parachute company, a Fallschirm-Infanterie-Kompanie. The army did not have a training facility of its own, thus they utilized the already established Luftwaffe facility at Stendal/Borstel (under Olt. Bassange) exclusively.
On 4 November 1938, the Fallschirm-Infanterie-Batallion moved from Stendal to their new barracks and the army parachute units were transferred over to the Luftwaffe in 1939, the former army soldiers continued to wear.
The Army Paratroopers Badge was re-instituted on 1 June 1943 with the formation of the 15th (Fallschirmjager-) Kompanie of Brandenburg Regiment 4 (on 1 April 1943).the army version of the Parachutist badge
