    HJ Golden Leader sports badge (HJ-Führersportabzeichen) - qualification criteria

  2. #2
    When the Golden Leader Sports badge was introduced there was confusion as to its relationship to the HJ achievement badge in silver (this badge was the prerequisite for the award of the golden leader badge and was the highest achievement award). Holders of the Golden Leader badge were unsure how to wear the new badge and often wore both on the right breast pocket or they moved the HJ silver over to the left pocket and wore the gold on the right or they stopped wearing the HJ silver altogether.

    It was decided in 1939 that the Golden Leader badge would be aligned officially with the HJ achievement badges and that it would rank above the HJ achievement badge in silver. Once achieved, the Golden Leader replaced the HJ in silver on the right breast pocket.

    There probably is Paul. The Germans were pretty meticulous about documentation. I would not be surprised to see a list turn up someday.

    Führer-Sportabzeichen der Hitlerjugend - Sports Badge for Leaders in the HJ.

    Allthough there is nothing new in this article by Klaus D. Patzwall, I thought that it would be of interest (From Militaria, vol. 1, number 2, March-April 2000).
