The German Army Flak, (Anti-aircraft Artillery), Badge was instituted by Generalfeldmarschall Walther von Brauchitsch, on July 18TH 1941, for bestowal to army anti-aircraft battery crews, with the award of the badge based on a point structure basis. Of Note: Although Hermann Göring’s Luftwaffe was the ultimate authority of all things concerned with flight including anti-aircraft defense most division within the German army had a subordinate Flak battalion that usually contained three 88mm caliber batteries and an additional two 20mm caliber batteries to provide internal air defense.
