This is not one of the many post-war whittlings that are around but one which has seen some service. Very good condition. This has been in my personal collection since July 1976. (This is quite a historically important item of German Wehrmacht history. These hand-carved sticks are named after the Wolchow river-area near Leningrad in Russia where very hard fighting was experienced by the German army, Luftwaffe, and Waffen-SS in the later war years. Throughout the eastern campaign these sticks were carved by Poles, Russians ,Ukrainians and PoWs and were given as tokens of friendship to the German soldiers. On page 174 in Brian L. Davis’ book, "German Army Uniforms & Insignia 1939-1945"....(see item 50509) there is a picture of an officer carrying one of these sticks. Original sticks rarely show up today and they are always considered a real prized trophy of the vicious fighting on the Eastern Front).

With effect from 1905 women were allowed to receive the medal for service in mosques and schools and other charitable work. The medal is 25mm dia and came in both gold and silver classes, suspended from a red ribbon with narrow green side stripes. Military awards made during World War 1 bear a ribbon clasp of crossed sabres with the year '1333' (1915) in the same material as the medal itself. Many German servicemen received this medal during the First World War War. Nice condition.
