Title Prussian Guard artillery collar patch, Somme battle find
Nationality German
Period 1907-16
Price £75.00

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.

This has probably come off a greatcoat, one of a pair worn on either side of the collar. The condition is excellent for the age, just a little dusty and with the odd moth nip here and there.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.


[Militaria : Tunics : German : 20th Century]

testimonials

Just to let you know the two propelling pencils, in the form of pistols, have just arrived in the condition you sent them. Thank you very much indeed for your excellent and prompt service, and I will keep a look out on your site for any other pencils you may have for sale in the future.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
