Title Oberlaunstein veteran's union cross
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Price £45.00

The top element with the imperial crown above two crossed swords and oak leaves has the logo 'Deutscher Krieger Bund' for German Warriors League (ie veterans in a military sense), whereas the cross underneath has a portrait of the emperor in silhouette and gives the name of the district, in this case Oberlaunstein.

These crosses would have been worn in Germany right through the Great War to indicate patriotism and previous service, and into the 20s and 30s by the members of the various veterans organisations.

Its condition is excellent for its age and the ribbon is still nice and bright.

Having had time to have a relax and a good look at the brooch, am very pleased with it, many thanks for sending it on promptly and safely. Will keep an eye on the site.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
