BACKGROUND: The DRKB, "Deutscher Reichskriegerbund" (German National-veterans’-league), was formed during WWI, and was based on the DKB, "Deutscher Kriegerbund," originally formed after the Franco-Prussian war in the 1870s. By 1936 it had incorporated most of the varied veterans’ associations into it, and was itself re-named the NS-RKB, "Nationalsozialistische - Reichskriegerbund," in 1938. Uniform and headgear regulations were introduced prior to 1933, were modified in 1936, and again in 1938.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A stamped alloy insignia, roughly in the form of an oval, 40mm wide and 50mm tall. To its oval center is the image of the "Kyffhäuser," a monument to a united Germany located in Saxony, with "Der Kyffhäuserbund" arching above it, and "Seinem Kameraden" beneath. A bound, open-topped wreath of oak leaves is along the base of the center oval, and rays project outwards along its top. Bottom prong is missing, but the top one is complete.
