WHW HJ und DJ Ausrüstung Set Series 1

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThe Germans had a Winter Assistance Program (Winterhilfswerk) which consisted of a street level collection aimed at raising funds to assist those who were cold or hungry. The program was started by Brüning in 1931 and later coopted by the NSDAP. Part of this program involved the exchange of decorative tokens of nominal value, usually in sets.

This set dates from the 10th and 11th of May, 1941 and consisted of 8 items of HJ and DJ equipment. There were three series of this issue, varying slightly in materials and finish.
