militaria item Baden Landwehr pickelhaube plate
- German
This would have been mounted on the last pattern pickelhaube as worn in WW1. The original pickelhaube was introduced into the Prussian army in 1848 and was successively modified right through 1914 and beyond, the height of the helmet being repeatedly reduced. In 1871, Baden army units were absorbed into the German army.

militaria item 17th Brunswick Hussars Totenkopf, undress cap
- German
The other regiments that wore this insignia were the 1st and 2nd Life Guard Hussars of Prussia. Brunswick was the only minor state which had the privilege of wearing it. The regiment wore a similar but larger badge at Waterloo, where they fought with great distinction. It is just under 5 mm. tall.

militaria item Tank crew assault badge
- German
This die-struck badge was awarded by the Weimar Republic to WW1 tank crews who had served in three assaults or been wounded in the course of one. The soldier had to apply for the badge and, once he had received the award document, would privately purchase the badge. Sepp Dietrich, commander of the LAH, wore this in 1940 photos.

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 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.
