History


This badge was founded by Emperor Wilhelm II to reward the meritorious service of U-boat crews during World War I.

The badge was originally awarded to Non-Commissioned Officers and other ranks in recognition of a combat wound or three successful war patrols. Later the badge criteria was amended to also include personnel who had completed two successful patrols, and who had also rendered a minimum of 150 days of service on the open sea.

There were approximately 5000 badges conferred in total.
