New stuff help needed

Recommended Posts

Hallo Perce :cheers:

As Third Reich Items have been heavily faked this is why we need to see good close up pictures.

Top item is one of a pair of shoulder straps

The Eagle with outstretched wings over a swastika is from a cap.

The two black / Green lozenge shaped items are from the collars of a uniform denoting unit.

The shield object on the bottom left is the KRIM Campaign Shield,

given for service in the Crimea Campaign, these have been faked as well.

Military medals are my main area of interest but I am sure some of our members will be able to i.d. all with better pictures.

Do you have any more gen on the fascist youthbadge- where was it worn? Was it sewn onto a sidecap?

Pete is correct that it's a youth badge. In particular it's a cap badge for the groups Balilla (8-11 year olds), Balilla Moschettieri (11-13 yrs), Avanguardisti (13-15 yrs) & Avanguardisti Moschettieri (15-17). The Giovani Fascisti (18-21 yrs) had a different cap badge I believe.

The badge was sewn to the Fez .
