headdress

Generally speaking, this covers late-18th to mid-20th century and all disciplines from parade items to combat equipment. Good reference books include: two volumes by Carman on British military headdress and Tom Stubbs's excellent book on Imperial German officers' headdress, published by Schiffer, USA.

militaria item Officers' cap cockades (9)
- German
These include two Wurtemburg examples, a Saxon one, a Brunswick one, several Prussian ones and two Reichs kokarden. They were worn (both in peace and war) on the front of the cap to indicate the state of Germany from which the wearer came. The other ranks examples were stitched in place, while these were pinned.

militaria item Prussian artillery officer's helmet cover
- German
This is a near mint example in field grey cloth of an artillery officer's pickelhaube cover, which was introduced mainly for potential war-time service in 1910 when the field grey uniform came into service. It is marked 'DRP' on the inside of the lining, which could be the owner's initials or possibly a maker's mark.

This fits the standard troopers helmet. This regiment, one of the oldest in the Household Cavalry, has guarded the monarchs of Britain ever since Charles II returned in 1660. They still guard the monarch on state occasions, along with the Life Guards, who wear the same helmet, but with a white plume.

militaria item Waffen SS single decal helmet with mesh net, model 40
- German
THIS FAKE IS ON THE WEBSITE AS A WARNING! It is not in my possession. It has a new lining and has possibly been completely resprayed with a fairly good looking facsimile of feldgrau, but the main thing is the decal is a modern one.

militaria item Coastal Artillery cap with SS badges
- German
This dangerous fake would deceive many collectors. The cap is a genuine Coastal Artillery item; the soutache and the badges have all been added to 'create' a more interesting commercial prospect! The skull badge is certainly bogus and the eagle is not totally convincing, but might still be OK.

militaria item Waffen SS helmet, double decal
- German
THIS FAKE IS ON THE WEBSITE AS A WARNING! It is not in my possession as the client on whose behalf I was selling it returned it to his source. The shell and the party decal are OK, together with the bulk of the paintwork, but the SS decal has been added much later, perhaps only ten years ago, possibly to replace a damaged police decal.

militaria item Water protection police officer's side cap
- German
The Wasserschutzpolizei (WSP) were responsible for such duties as the policing of harbours, inland river ways and canals. This slightly scruffy example (several moth holes) of a rare side cap has blue rayon lining, a dark blue cloth body gold bullion piping.
