militaria item Shako plate
- German
This is a mystery helmet plate, apart from the fact that it is German and in the typical ersatz grey metal of the mid to late war years. It is of die-struck two-piece construction: a Prussian Guard star of the type used on shakos, the eagle and motto centre of which has been cut out, with a crown covering the hole made by this excision.

militaria item Unknown Weimar/Third Reich lapel badge, 'B.W.R.B.'
- German
This nice enamel and silver-coloured lapel badge (2.1cm diameter) by C Poellath of Schrobenhausen could be of Bavarian origin, with blue and white on one of the enamel shields, black and red on the other. It could be anything from a student fraternity badge to some veterans' union piece.

militaria item Garde insignia, possibly for busby or shako?
- German
This (9cm diameter) appears to be made out of a Prussian Garde star in pressed tin with a blackened finish. However, the centre element of the star has been cut away and a German crown, possibly a ducal one, imposed thereon. I don't think this is a modern pastiche piece; I think it is a war-time example of some Garde unit for a minor German state.

militaria item 2 Prussian Landwehr officer's cap cockades
- German
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.

militaria item Rhineland hussar regiment veteran's badge
- German
This rather splendid veteran's badge has its original paper retailer's label on the back in black and gold. The logo around the edge translated means the first regimental roll call of the former hussar regiment King William I, Bonn-on-the-Rhine.

militaria item Shako plate, WW1
- German
This appears to be composed of two elements, the backing plate being the star for the Prussian Guard, but the central crown being more like the ducal crown of Hesse. My guess is that this is an extempore piece made in WW1 for Hessian Jaeger battalions. If anyone can enlighten me as to what it is, I would be delighted to know.
