Beautiful quality “Padded” cloth Paratrooper / Fallschirmschutzenabzeichen badge. This badges were often used instead of the metal version as they din’t catch on things. You don’t often see the padded version of these badges.

The badge was established 5. November 1936, by the order of Hermann Göring. It was awarded to those who completed jump training, paratroop instructors and other personnel.

After twelve months every recipient of the badge had to prove that minimum of six jumps were done in this period. They inspected active service in this way. Paratrooper badge was a sign of active service.
