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 Sabretache ornament, Saxon?
- German
I think this is a badge (13.5 x 9.5cm) off an undress sabretache, ie plain leather, possibly at the time of Johann, King of Saxony (hence JR), 1854-73. It may be an unfinished piece, inasmuch as there are no fixing points on the reverse. It would appear to be a cast bronze, hand finished badge.

militaria item 1st/2nd Prussian Life Guard Hussars busby banner
- German
This was worn above a large white metal death's head skull on the pelzmutze / sealskin busby of this unit. They were worn from at least the mid-19th century to 1918. There are some marvellous photograhps showing the princesses of Prussia in the Edwardian era wearing these busbys on the steps of one of their palaces!

militaria item Bavarian NCO pickelhaube plate
- German
This is a typical private purchase piece, die-struck in gilding metal with a light gilt wash, with screw post reverse as opposed to soldered loops on issue helmets. It would have been worn on the infantry or dragoon helmet by an NCO or perhaps an 'einjahriger' volunteer/officer candidate.

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 1st Foot Guards Fusilier Battalion mitre cap ornament, ORs?
- German
This was introduced in 1848 when the Kaiser Alexander Guard Grenadier regiment(1st Prussian Foot Guards) raised a Fusilier battalion in addition to their numbers. Three of these were worn: one at each side and one at the rear of the mitre cap. The original battalions wore flaming grenades in the same places. The officer's version was gilt.
