Jacquesf,

Nothing at all unusual or strange about these awards. There were transfers whether voluntary or not from one branch of the service to another as in two examples you provided Luftwaffe to Heer and Luftwaffe to SS. Therefore they wore those decorations awarded to them on the uniform of the branch of service they are currently serving with. SS were awarded the same awards as the Army. Soldiers/Airmen can qualify for several badges such as one example Infantry assault badge and Panzerjaeger/grenadier for PAB in Bronze or a Luftwaffe man wearing a IAB or GAB. I will have to dig through my archives/file boxes for some examples to post.

Probably not unusual, if RAD personnel acted as flak helpers, but interesting,
Kerry.
