    I think this needs to be discussed .

    I have only seen a few photos of HJ wearing assault badges .
    Of these photos , all were home on leave from the War and were doing there duty as instructors etc. back with there old HJ home unit , but wearing Hitlerjugend uniforms .
    There is the famous newsclip of the 20 boys being decorated with the Iron Cross 2nd class at Hitlers Bunker in 1945 , One of these youths is wearing an Infantry assault badge , however ; he was recalled from his
    unit at the Front , to the führerbunker to be awarded the EK2 as an HJ because he was barley 17 years old . ( common for 16 -17 year olds to volunteer for the whermacht at this age from mid 1943 onwards) .
    I am highly suspect of combat awards being awarded to Hitlerjugend ...besides the most common ...War Service cross 2nd class , wound badge , the Iron Cross 2nd class and the Luftwaffe flak badge for HJ luftwaffe helpers.
    Also the Luftwaffe flak service arm patch ...worn on the lower left sleeve .

    I`d like Paul and Garry to chime in on this one when time permits .

    I am supect because of the fact that at this date in April of 1945 , most awards documents were not even regulation printed documents .
    The 20 Hitlerjugend that were awarded the EK2 at the führerbunker in March of 1945 were not even given an award document . I have seen award documents issued in 1945 that were just hand written on a blank peice of paper with what the award was for , then stamped and signed by the Comander of the soldiers unit that he was attached to .

    I personally know an 89 year old former Waffen
    woman who was a Signals Auxiliary . She was awarded the War Service cross 2nd class in January of 1945 . She had lost her uniform during a bombing raid and just wore civilian clothes with a yellow armband but did manage to retain her
    signals overcoat .

    She was just given the medal in a small ceremony wich included a boquet of flowers and a bottle of wine but no certificate , she did indicate that a notation was entered in her passbook .

    Can you retake a photo of this document and adjust the color so we can make out just what the stamping on the lower left indicates ?

    JUST had a look at this document and find it a complete fake due to the obvious inserts which where never written t his way and just plain appears to be something made up to get bucks out of the HJ collector family. The HJ was a political movement they where not entitled to these combat awards and in fact it was a real stretch and last ditch ploy at the end to issue iron crosses.
    Sorry to be so blunt but one can read through this clearly.

    HJ Scharführer Volkssturm

    So this is a HJ Scharführer who was apparently awarded the
    in bronze whilst a member of the Volkssturm (4th Regt(?), 2nd battalion Max Ritter von Müller). My first question would be whether a Volkssturm member would even have been eligible for this award... Also, as you guys have said, an award document 3 weeks before the end of the war, typed and stamped? For a Volkssturm HJ? If real this would be a bit of a sensation wouldn't it? Have you researched this further Sebastian? Would be good to know more about it if you have.

    Who had the time or inclination to stamp documents at that stage of the war?
