Title Kriegsmarine NCO's sleeve patch - helmsman
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Price £15.00

These oval badges were worn by NCOs and denoted their particular professional skill, in this case a helmsman. It would have been worn on the upper left arm.

It is machine embroidered yellow (perhaps a cotton/rayon mix as it has a sheen to it) on a navy blue wool broadcloth ground, with a cotton backing to the top and rayon mesh for the rest. It measures nearly 9cm long and is in ex-stores condition.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
