German Heer Chaplains Crusher Cross - Aged Condition
Reproduction German WWII Wehrmacht Heer Chaplains Embroidered Cross. Museum quality standard in wool, aluminium bullion and cotton. If you want a historically accurate cross that really jumps out at you - this is the one to get! Mostly used on crusher caps only but there are exceptions worn on standard caps.
It is approximately 34mm tall and 30mm wide. It is sewn between the eagle and the wreath but above the Chaplains piping.
This is the prefect cross if you have a Heer Chaplains cap without a cross or if you are a reenactor or collector who want to replace a poor quality cross with something special.
There were over 500 Catholic military chaplains in Nazi Germany at the outbreak of World War II and approximately 1100 by the end of the war. Hermann Göring had forbidden such chaplains in the air force, but the other branches of the military were generally supportive of the institution.
