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:

[ Show all ]
militaria item Royal Scots Greys silver back pouch, hallmarked
- Scottish
This rather battered example of a mid-19th-century Scots Greys officer's pouch (worn in the small of the back on a gold braid belt) is unique to the cavalry, with its image of a captured French standard ornament as a central device. (Sgt. Charles Ewart captured the eagle of the 45th French Line at Waterloo on 18th June 1815.)

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.

militaria item Sapeurs Pompiers de la Marine helmet plate
- French
This has to be one of the rarest of the 2nd Empire military fire brigade badges, being the helmet plate for the navy branch. The helmet was a magnificent looking creation in brass with a high comb and fancy chin scales. This would have been worn on the front of the helmet, above the peak and below the crest.
