Chris.

They used the old type skull in the prototypes, which were rejected.

But ................... nice to see the skull still featuring on British uniforms in these politically correct times.

I purchased one of these from Weitze late last year with a COA.

Are there now four known to exist??

I don't remember that Weitze had an original on his site during last years? There were only MWH fakes for sale. Can you show us pictures?

I've seen the black/white/red slip-on loops in WWI strap collections. I wasn't sure what they indicated....perhaps volunteers. Seeing this, it seems it must be a postwar thing.

This lot was sold by Weitze two times. It was offered as "Wehrwolf", but in my opinion it has nothing to do with the Wehrverband.

Awesome collection.  I do have a question.  Post number 2 the blue hat with the orange piping on the second shelf.  Can you tell me what it is please?  I have one, with out the badge, and don't know what branch it represents.

Welxcome to the GMIC!

In answer to your question, I'm not sure which post you mean but you will likely have better luck if you ask the original poster directly.  Just click on the screen name of the person who posted and you can send him a private message. :)

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
