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.

militaria item Landwehr cross, officer's field cap
- German
This impressed silver cross (5cm square) would have been worn in the 19th century, anywhere from Waterloo through to the Franco-Prussian war of 1871. It would probably have been worn on the soft field cap or shako. It doesn't have the usual logo of Mit Gott etc. However, it is almost certainly a Prussian example on account the Maltese cross design.

militaria item Hessian guard shako plate
- German
This (9cm diamater) appears to be composed of two elements, the backing plate being the star of the Prussian Guard, but the central crown being more like the ducal crown of Hesse, which one finds on Hessian belt buckles in brass and anodised steel. My guess is that this is an extempore piece made in WW1 for Hessian Garde Jaeger battalions.
