militaria item Headdress insignia
- Unknown
This could be a US piece for the Union kepi or the Hardee hat, which was a black felt slouch hat with a turned up brim. Alternatively it could be for some colonial Dutch or Boer unit. It is head insignia because of the two pairs of holes punched for stitching attachment at either end of one of the canons and the brass prongs sweated on at the back.

militaria item Officer's cap cockade
- Unknown
This could be Russian or East European and would have been worn perhaps on a sealskin fur cap, rather like those worn by our own Rifle Brigade at the turn of the century. It is essentially a brass badge with a silver wash, together with gilt metal inserts filled with dark (possibly black) enamel.

militaria item Martingale badge
- Unknown
This badge could be French or Dutch/Boer, because of the design, but there's an outside chance that it could be a US piece from the Civil War. These badges were worn on the breast of the horse in an arrangement which helped keep the saddle in place. The crossed cannons and the flaming bomb denote artillery usage.
