Title Prussian Guard artillery collar patch, Somme battle find
Nationality German
Period 1907-16
Price £75.00

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.

This has probably come off a greatcoat, one of a pair worn on either side of the collar. The condition is excellent for the age, just a little dusty and with the odd moth nip here and there.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
