The round dots look like the ceramic heating tiles you sometimes saw on very old stoves.

I have always found it interesting that this WHW pin is a reverse swastika.

Don't forget the swastika started its life not as a symbol of the Third Reich but a symbol of good luck throughout many cultures and countries including our own out of the Midwest with native Americans

The HK was also seen as a symbol of good fortune by the National Socialists.
So there are various small badges, the HK as the shining sun, which outshines everything.
 
Well, a horseshoe and a shamrock would have looked pretty stupid  :D
 
The 45th I.D. not to be forgotten before 1939
