HISTORY:
The Blockade runner badge was instituted on April 1, 1941 in order to reward the ship members who participated to attempt or actually break the allied sea blockade.

The badge was designed by Otto Placzeck, Berlin, and it featured a ship with a large national emblem on its bow. The ship is shown cutting a chain which border the entire badge. The badge was dark gray colored and the eagle is silvered.

The Blockade Runner's Badge was manufactured in either tombac or in zinc by several different manufacturers, the best known of which is Schwerin, Berlin.

The badge was worn on the left breast pocket. When awarded, it was accompanied with a miniature pin badge which was worn on the lapel of civilian wear.
