Title 2 Prussian Landwehr officer's cap cockades
Nationality German
Period 1914-18
Price £50.00

The Landwehr were the first line of the reserve, the second line being the Landsturm. The concept of the Landwehr cockade dates back to the Napoleonic Wars and was always in the form of a Maltese cross. These cockades would have been worn on the front of the cap, under the national cockade in black, white and red.

The cap itself would have had a short black leather or vulcanite peak.

These measure 2 and 2.5cm across. One has stitch holes punched out on each side, the other having short brass prongs for insertion into the cap. Both are in exellent shape, with only a little minor patination to the 'silver' elements.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
