I\'m looking for the name and /or pics of the award some Wehrmacht, SS or Heer got during the war... I looked for it online but haven\'t found it.

Basically it\'s a metal plaque which hangs from a chain like a bracelet.
Basically what this chap has around his neck:

Here is a screenshot from Stalingrad:

I can\'t make out what it reads on the front, but it starts with \"Feld\".

I have no idea what it means/does, I just remembered it in the movie and took a screenie Tongue Sorry I couldn\'t be of more help.
@iso, thats a sign of the German feldgendarmerie, I believe they are field police, they picked up lost soldiers and arrested deserters.

EDIT: here you can find more of those so called Gorget\'s.
As far as I can remember it\'s a special kind of reward or whatever. I don\'t know for sure but for some reason either \"veteran\" or \"bravery\" comes into mind.

I searched \"feld\" but no... we used to talk about it when I was on the team though so someone should know.
Hmmm well, the website Axis History doesnt mention those gorgets as awards, i think they were more used as identification, for example the Feldgendarmerie.

I don\'t see it on the page at all Confused
But at least I have the name so now google can do his work.

Gorgots it is... thanks Big Grin
