    Career FJ, or transferred in? These questions are not simple.

    i have SB of SS Pz.Gren.Rgt.25, you know, it fought from very early time in Normandy (June.6), but ccc days is still not enough,
    his ccc clasp is awarded with 3 days from Russland + 12 days from Normandy, and awarded in Jan.1945. you judge.

    Ok ! Thanks men,
    well not CCC on my flieger for my future normandy FJ!
    pity! the close combat clasp is one of my favorite with the FJ badge!
    but I try to be precise in the reconstruction.

    I say no as well. It took time to earn the required combat days, and time to be awarded the clasp. Likely to have earned many days during the Normandy campaign, but that was not the question.

    Seems entirely possible. Veterans of Earlier campaigns there may have had them.
    Didn't Alexander Uhlig wear one in Normandy ?( no, it's flying clasp - edit)
    Cheers

    Hello,
    yes, after Normandy veterans of fjr6 had the CCC.
    but could an FJ have had it in africa or italy and carried it during the normandie fights?
    my question is just to know if i let my ccc on my flieger for my future FJ Normandy.
    just to be precise with the details!

    i'd say NO
    1, FJ with CCC is very rare to see or in a grouping,
    2, FJ need a long time term to verify their soldiers,
    3, i think there must have CCC for Normandy, but it is hard to see they are wearing CCC in Normandy battle, maybe for former battles.
