History


The Naval Combat Badge of the Small Battle Units was founded by Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz on November 30th, 1944, and was conferred upon members of the Small Battle Units (Kleinkampfverbände), a branch of the Navy which consisted of frogmen, one-man torpedoes, midget submarines and other unconventional combat devices. The branch was formed in fall of 1943, and the personnel or “K-Men” saw their first action at Anzio in April 1944.

The award was instituted in seven grades and was conferred based upon the number of actions an individual participated in.

Class III is an embroidered badge that features a swordfish and two swords. It was conferred upon individuals who participated in two actions.
