Arbeits Dank - RAD sponsorship organisation badge. C. Dinsel Berlin
Arbeits Dank — RAD sponsorship organisation badge. C. Dinsel Berlin. Ges.Gesch marked The organization was instituted by the RAD's forerunner, the FAD/NSAD, in November 1933 as a welfare unit acting as a form of health insurance for all Labor Service members who had sustained injuries or illness related to their work. It also assisted poorer Labor Service members with acquiring further education or job skills in order to gain employment after leaving the service. All members of the FAD/NSAD and the later RAD were required to belong and financially contribute to this organization. This badge is the standard membership badge for this organization, although there was also a badge of honor — Ehrenabzeichen in the same design, with a base of silver gilt and a generally more lustrous appearance.
