New Pickelhuabe 34th Füsilier


Recommended Posts

Recently got this haube. The plate is original, the big question is if it's orginal to the shell. What is it supposed to be with the mixture of officer parts, Einjähriger? There is a extra outtake for the plate, but coud it be that it just didn't fit the fit the first holes?

very nice. I bet this pickelhaube was a hard one to find.

There are few of these plates around. But indeed a pain to find at a decent price.

How did units get the right to have "different" helmet plates?

I don't really know the reasons behind it. But I guess it were old regiments with an glorious enough past. Some parts of the 33th and a little bit later the whole of the 34th were given these rights in the middle of the 1800s. Both of them Swedish regiments in pommern since the beginning of 1700s. Later transferred to the prussians after the deal made in june 1815 regarding some territories (we got Norway, shitty trade when considering these guys kept rebelling against us).

Back to the first post of the topic. Somebody that can help me clarify things?

Hi,

yes, not only the (I. & II. Btl.) Füsilier-Regt. Nr.34 - also the 5.& 6. Komp. Füsilier-Regt. Nr.33 was allowed to wear this honor-banner!

The honor-banner was to recognize the regiments service to the Queen of Sweden and their participation in the Napoleonic wars.

;) Best regards,

Jens

Possibly connected with it being a convenient time for the King of Prussia to send a friendly statement to the Swedes. Or perhaps there was a marriage somewhere between members of the two royal houses?
