More info

On the 23rd September 1936 Wilhelm Ritter von Thoma was ordered, by the Army High Command, to Spain as Commander of Group "Imker" (Beekeeper), the ground contingent of the German Legion Condor. Arriving in Spain in early October 1936, the personnel of Group "Imker" who were originally volunteers from Panzer Regiment 6 "Neuruppin" of the 3rd Panzer Division were tasked with the training of Franco's Spanish Nationalist officers and men in tanks, infantry tactics, artillery and signals employment. Group "Imker" maintained two, then three panzer training companies equipped with Panzer I light tanks under the codename group "Drohne" (Drones).

Members of the panzer group received the Legion Condor Tank Battle Badge for their participation, this making the Legion Condor Tank Battle Badge the first award issued in a time of war by the germans.
