militaria item Civilian forester's collar insignia, unmarked silver
- German
These were worn on either side of an open-necked dark green tunic collar. The oak leaf and acorn were traditional symbols of German forestry. Every landed estate would have had its foresters responsible for keeping the woodland in trim and the livestock herds therein in good condition, ie culling them when need be.

militaria item Prussian Guard artillery collar patch, Somme battle find
- German
This gem is inscribed 'High Wood Aug. 1916' on the hessian backing of the reverse. No doubt a Thomas Atkins souvenir, picked up perhaps in an abandoned dug-out, or even removed from a corpse! High Wood was perhaps one of the best known locations in that eventful summer, with a fearsome reputation on both sides.

militaria item Prussian Train officer's epaulette
- German
This is an oberleutnant's example (one star). The silver bullion with black silk thread denotes a Prussian unit. The light blue underlay denotes the arm of service, in this case the Military Train (transport corps). The button is of gilding metal,with a gilt rank star.

militaria item Prussian Artillery officer's epaulette
- German
This replaced the silver bullion epaulettes as a war time economy measure, the black/white chevron denoting Prussian service, the red underlay the artillery branch, and the number that of the regiment. By virtue of the single pip, this is for an oberleutnant's rank. The insignia is zinc with a feldgrau wash.

Just wanted to thank you very much for finding the sword - you have made C's day and therefore mine!

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
