Nahkampfspange in Gold Recipients

Collected by John Winner

I make no claim to having done all the research on this subject. The list was created by gathering information from multiple forums/websites/books and put together after comparision into one list for the benifit of researchers. Additions or correction can be sent to me at isuxors@hotmail.com 98 recipiants of the Nahkampfspange in Gold also received in Ritterkreuz, they are marked * Some awards cannot be documented, or were not awarded, they are marked ** (9 soldiers) Totals for the different branches are Heer: 522 (5 unconfirmed/not awarded), SS: 126 (4 unconfirmed/not awarded), Luftwaffe: 7, total: 655 winners (9 unconfirmed/not awarded), this is at odds with the current estimate of 631. Where a total of more than 50 certified days is know it will be stated in the list The Nahkampfspange was awarded in 3 grades, bronze for 15 days close combat, silver fo 25 days and gold for 50 days. The award was instituted 25 November 1942, combat days could be counted retroactively to 1 December 1941 (exception to soldiers on the easternfront retroactive to 1 June 1941). A day of close combat was defined as "fighting man-to-man using cold steel and handheld weapons". The days were recorded in the soldiers Soldbuch and certified by the company commander or higher ranking superior with a signature. After 50 days had been accumulated many time records were no longer kept as there was no higher award.
