Product Details

Marksmen lanyards (Schutzenschur) were introduced in 1936. The lanyards were issued in twelve ascending grades with grade one being the lowest and grade twelve the highest. The lanyards were awarded to qualifying Soldaten were accompanied with an award certificate. The lanyards were worn suspended from under the right shoulder strap and attached to the second top front closure button of most uniforms.

We are offering these with two different types of marksman badges. The first pattern shield offered to the Infantry for levels 1-4 (the small decal looking badge). The other is the first pattern that was offered to Panzer troops (the badge with the tank on it). We also offer the Lanyard plain without any badge on it.

These are made of a silver bullion braided cord.
