AGED BRONZE SUBMARINE COMBAT CLASP
The U-boat Front Clasp (German: U-Boot-Frontspange) or U-boat Combat Clasp, was a World War II German Kriegsmarine military decoration awarded to holders of the U-boat War Badge to recognize continued combat service and valor.
The design of the badge consisted of a central laurel wreath with a stylized submarine and wings of oak leaves. The wings on either side consisted of six staggered oak leaves.
The award was bestowed in two classes:
- Bronze: the lower grade and awarded based on the number of war patrols, the degree of risks involved in the mission and for personal bravery.
- Silver: on 24 November 1944, the silver class was introduced to further recognize bronze holders with continued merits, increased risk and acts of valor.
