Title Schutzpolizei epaulette for Hauptwachtmeister
Nationality German
Period c 1936-45
Price £20.00

Because of its bright nature, I strongly suspect that this originally came from a peace time parade uniform and would have been stitched into the shoulder. The two pips and the aluminium braid bar at the base of the epaulette give the rank and the indication of four years' service.

It is constructed over stiff card, with a grass green cotton underlay signifying police, and a dark brown cotton centre with the bright bullion carrying a matching dark brown chevron pattern. Its condition is consonant with pre-war wear and having been taken from the shoulder of a tunic.

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

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
