General assault badge 25 assaults "Sturmgeschütz-Brig. 243" award document to Unteroffizier Werner Rafflenbeul. Very interesting document for 25 Stug general assaults! The combat days for this high award were most likely counted withinHeeresgruppe Südukraine when retreating towards south Ukraine: Abwehrkämpfen südostwärts Saparoshje, Brückenkopf Nikopol, Abwehrschlacht in Kriwoi Rog, Abwehrkämpfe Dnjepr, North of Nikolajew, and the Rückzugsgefechte bis an den Bug untill the Dnjepr was reached. From middle April till 10.5.44  the Brigade fought at Raum Tiraspol-Akkerman and south Grigoripol. They fought at Dnjestrschleife, at the "Marmeladenfabrik" and Kpschnitza, were they lost huge amount of men! Later on they were trapped in the Kessel at Raum Jassy at Kischinew. Many of the Brigade were captured, but Rafflenbeul managed to survive. The unit later came into play in the Ardennes offensive. 

A VERY uncommon general assault badge 25 assault award document to a top Stug unit!
