militaria

This field covers uniforms, headdress and badges from the 18th century through to Third Reich items from the 20th century. Much of this material can be seen in context in contemporary prints/drawings and other art work, eg bronzes and photographs. I keep a very sharp eye out for, and a photographic record of, all the particularly convincing Third Reich fakes that come my way. Good reference books include: The Emperor's Coat by Rest, Ortner & Ilming (Verlag Militaria) on Austro-Hungarian militaria, Great War period; Shoulder-belt plates and buttons by Parkyn on British militaria; two volumes by King on British military headdress badges. The National Army Museum (Royal Hospital Road, London SW3) has an excellent bookshop and display covering the British side of this great subject.

Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

militaria item Westminster truncheon, 18th century
- British
This 24" truncheon is the classic Westminster design, with the pre-1801 Royal Arms. It would have been carried by the local watch officers prior to the establishment of Peel's police force in 1832. It is just possible that this is a George II example, which on the death of that king in 1760 simply had an extra Roman numeral I added for George III.

militaria item U-boat close combat badge, silver class
- German
This is the rare silver grade, issued 24 November 1944 for exceptional valour in close combat, mostly against Allied aircraft assaults. Moreover, this is the first pattern of the clasp with a central hollowed out area to the reverse. The lesser bronze version had already been introduced on 15 May 1944.

militaria item George III truncheon for Little Cressingham
- British
This is a parish truncheon from a small village in Norfolk. It bears the coat of arms current from 1801-16, the latter part of George III's reign, as well the name 'L.Cressingham' to distinguish it from Greater Cressingham nearby. These parish truncheons are quite hard to come by, not quite as rare as the Tithing or Hundred type.

militaria item Parish of Liskeard truncheon
- British
The barrel of this little truncheon (approx 1' long) is decorated with 'Parish of Liskeard', 'VR', '1856', a plough and a large royal crown in gold on a red field. At that time, Liskeard was a small fishing village in Cornwall. This truncheon would have been used by the parish constable to make arrests.

militaria item Ordnungspolizei officer's peak cap
- German
Unusual example, being essentially a Weimar period cap (green band as opposed to brown) with 3rd Reich 1936 pattern insignia. Maker mark Alkero, dot punched into leather sweat band. Vaguely legible name on paper insert. This cap has had extensive field use and shows comensurate wear and tear.
