Title Afrika Korps sun helmet shield
Nationality German
Period c 1941
Sold

This was worn on the left hand side of the pith helmet, while on the right hand side the national colours were worn in a striped shield. It is in nice condition overall, with original paint work and silver finish to the eagle. The pins on the reverse have been replaced. A typical souvenir of Tommy Atkins from the North African Campaign.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
