WW1 German Feldmützen Cap or Hat Cockade Württemberg NCO & Officers #9
Between 1900 and 1910 the political history of Württemberg centred round constitutional and educational questions. The constitution underwent revision in 1906 and improvements to the education system were made in 1909. In 1904 the Württemberg railway system integrated with that of the rest of Germany.
Following the First World War, King William abdicated on 30 November 1918. The Kingdom was replaced by the Free People's State of Württemberg. The cockade used during WWI to represent Württemberg was black & red.
This cockade was worn on the centre of the Feldmütze band below the Reich's cockade. This version was for NCO (Portepee-Unteroffiiziere) & Officer ranks and is one of several versions produced, made of two part metal (they were also made with compressed paper). It is attached to the cap using the prongs attached to the rear.
