militaria item Prussian general's epaulettes, Hohenzollern family provenance
- German
This is a pair of full general's epaulettes for wear on the field grey tunic, introduced in 1907. These formerly belonged to General Wilhelm von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, Prince von Hohenzollern (1864-1927). The twin stars and triple braided bullion cords indicate his rank. The black fleck on the silver bullion indicates Prussian service.

militaria item Oldenburg or Baden officer's schaerpen
- German
These were worn in full dress up until 1896, when the 'feldbindung' or officer's dress belt replaced them for all practical purposes, but their use continued for gala occasions. This bullion sash, with a cloth backing and magnificent silver bullion tassels, has a thin red stripe in the centre, used uniquely by Oldenburg and Baden regiments.

militaria item Civilian forester's collar insignia, unmarked silver
- German
These were worn on either side of an open-necked dark green tunic collar. The oak leaf and acorn were traditional symbols of German forestry. Every landed estate would have had its foresters responsible for keeping the woodland in trim and the livestock herds therein in good condition, ie culling them when need be.

militaria item NSKK driver's sleeve insignia, 1st pattern
- German
The NSKK were the motorised units of the SA, using trucks, motorcycles and sidecar motorcycles. They were used principally in the run-up to the war as a miiltary driving school to prepare young men for service with the forces. They wer also used in the pre-war period to move SA units rapidly around Germany when the Reds needed discomforting!

militaria item Schutzpolizei NCO collar patch
- German
This is an ex-stores example of the 'Ausgehanzug' variety, worn by senior NCOs, essentially on the pre-war parade uniform. The Schupo were the national police force of Germany, whose members later mutated partly into the SS Police division and partly into Schupo battalions working on the Eastern Front.

militaria item Arbeitsdienst administration officer's collar patch
- German
These were worn by personnel of the RAD (Reichsarbeitsdienst), which was the organisation that all young men had to serve in prior to entring the Wehrmacht. It gave them basic military skills and got them fit for service. The RAD were used for major construction projects in Germany before the war (eg buildling autobahns and bridges).

militaria item Prussian Guard artillery collar patch, Somme battle find
- German
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.

militaria item Prussian Train officer's epaulette
- German
This is an oberleutnant's example (one star). The silver bullion with black silk thread denotes a Prussian unit. The light blue underlay denotes the arm of service, in this case the Military Train (transport corps). The button is of gilding metal,with a gilt rank star.

militaria item Prussian Artillery officer's epaulette
- German
This replaced the silver bullion epaulettes as a war time economy measure, the black/white chevron denoting Prussian service, the red underlay the artillery branch, and the number that of the regiment. By virtue of the single pip, this is for an oberleutnant's rank. The insignia is zinc with a feldgrau wash.
