RARE, ORIGINAL, "Herman Goering Regiment" Early Nazi German Double Canted Decal Police Combat Helmet By ‘DRP THALE’ With Liner & Chin Strap. HE 859 - HE 859
This is an original example of an early Nazi Civil Police helmet with canted insignia; a National colour shield at right and a black/white swastika at left. It is unclear as to when the Nazis switched the insignia on early Police helmets to incorporate the police Eagle/wreath. Photos of these helmets in wear seem to be dated throughout the mid 1930s. These helmets were known as the "Herman Goering Regiment" helmet because for a time, Goering was the leader of the Berlin Police. The helmet retains its original black paint finish. It has no dents. The inner skirt of the helmet is manufacturer stamped ‘DRP Thale’. The left side of the helmet features the correct canted National emblem decal. The right has the correct canted Nazi Swastika. Both decals have excellent colouring and have just the wear consistent with age and service use. The helmet is complete with leather liner which has even field/ combat wear and what appears to be a later leather chin strap with clasp fastener. All leather and stitching are intact. It is approx. UK size 7. Price for this rare Nazi German Police helmet includes UK delivery. HE 859

WW2 Era Bersaglieri Light Infantry Hat With 1st Bersaglieri Plate & Black Capercaillie Feather Cockade. Sn 13203 - 13203
The Bersaglieri (Marksmen in English) are a corps of the Italian Army originally created by General Alessandro La Marmora on 18 June 1836 to serve in the Army of the Kingdom of Sardinia, later to become the Royal Italian Army. They have always been a high-mobility light infantry unit, and can still be recognized by the distinctive wide brimmed hat that they wear (only in dress uniform in modern times), decorated with black capercaillie feathers. The feathers are usually applied to their combat helmets. Another distinctive trait of the Bersaglieri is the fast jog pace they keep on parades, instead of marching. Italy began the Second World War with 12 Bersaglieri Regiments of three battalions each. Over the preceding years the Army had resisted suggestions to dilute their quality, and recruits continued to be of above-average size and stamina, endured intense physical training and had to qualify as marksmen. The Bersaglieri fought in southern France and then in Greece, later, Bersaglieri Regiments were also deployed on the Eastern Front. One Battalion of Bersaglieri participated in the East African Campaign. This is an original WW2 Era Bersaglieri Hat. The helmet’s body, sweatband, lining and leather chin strap are clean but have areas of surface wear consistent with age. The front of the helmet has its original large gold coloured metal plate with Number ‘1’ to the 1st Bersaglieri Light Infantry mounted on a cloth rosette in the colours of the Italian flag. The hat has its original leather chin strap with buckle and is mounted with the correct original Capercaillie Feather cockade. The helmet is approx UK size 7. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 13203
