German Cavalry badges 1914-1916


Recommended Posts

?! There were lots of hussars on the western front. However, most did not wear regimental badges like the British. they had national/unit badges on their helmets (Guards had a star device about the state emblem).

Landwehr/Landsturm troops wore collar numbers denoting their area/unit.

Apart from that only the national/state cockades were worn on the pork pie hats.

There were a few individual unit badges worn on caps here and there-mostly alpine units and special regiments granted exceptional privileges (like the deaths head for Brunswick units).
