Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Fantastic condition rare CIB by the English maker and marked on the reverse J. & J. B'HAM.

The enamel (or cloisonne) is absolutely stunning in color. It really stands out when displayed with CIB's of other manufacturers. Typical English pin. There are no repairs.

The Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB) is a United States Army military award. The badge is awarded to infantrymen and Special Forces soldiers in the rank of colonel and below, who fought in active ground combat while assigned as members of either an Infantry or Special Forces unit of brigade size or smaller at any time after 6 December 1941. For those soldiers who are not members of an infantry or Special Forces unit, the Combat Action Badge (CAB) is awarded instead.

The CIB and its non-combat contemporary, the Expert Infantryman Badge (EIB) were created in November 1943 during World War II to boost morale and increase the prestige of service in the Infantry. Specifically, it recognizes the inherent sacrifices of all infantrymen, and that they face a greater risk of being wounded or killed in action than any other military occupational specialties.
