M1957 Commemorative Medal of the Campaign in Afrika

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis medal, strictly speaking, is a non-German award, originating with the Fascist Italians. It was awarded to all of those Axis troops who served in the North African campaign. While it was not authorised for official wear by the German Wehrmacht, this particular example was issued by the post 1957 West German Government and omits the fascii and swastika.
