"AFRIKA" Cufftitle-This version in its typical standard format, machine embroidered grey script on brown camel hair cloth. It was issued, starting January 15, 1943, commemorating the individuals service in the North African campaign and was worn by all personnel of the Heer, Kriegsmarine, and Luftwaffe who had (a) served for at least six months in North Africa, (b) become physically inactive due to having contracted a tropical disease after serving for at least three months, or (c) had won any military decoration while on duty, regardless of length of time spent in the theatre of operations. This particular example is in great condition with only minor wear and a tiny hole. It is 17 1/2" long. It is particularly clean, and the cloth is very supple. This example is in near excellent condition!
