BACKGROUND: The SA flag bearer’s Kornet gorget was the first official gorget to be introduced by the NSDAP, at the Nürnberg Reichsparteitag in early August 1929. The NSKK and SS flag bearers used the SA Kornet gorget until the introduction of their respective gorgets; the NSKK in September 1935, and the SS in September 1938.
