German Naval E Boat Badge 1st Type

German Naval E boat badge 1st  model awarded from 1st May 1941 to  January 1943

The Fast Attack Craft War Badge or S-Boat War Badge was a World War II German military decoration awarded to members of the Kriegsmarine for service on fast attack craft or torpedo boats. It was worn on the lower part of the left breast pocket of the naval service tunic, underneath the 1st class Iron Cross if awarded, or equivalent grade award.

Requirements included an outstandingly successful sortie, wounds in action, 12 sorties against enemy vessels or installations, or outstanding leadership.

The badge was produced in two versions: the first, instituted on 30 May 1941; the second in January 1943. Both were designed by Wilhelm Ernst Peekhaus of Berlin. A third exclusive version with nine diamonds replacing the solid bars of the swastika at the top, also exists, but only eight are known to have been awarded. The criteria for this award were:

  1. To engage in 12 engagements against the enemy;
  2. For a particularly successful mission or being killed in action;
  3. Special circumstances of being wounded or surviving being sunk by the enemy;
  4. To have performed a heroic action in which no other award was given.
