WW1 German Feldmützen Cap or Hat Cockade Waldeck und Reuß #21
The cockade used during WW1 to represent Waldeck und Reuß was yellow, red and black.
Joining the North German Confederation after 1867, under Prussian leadership, the Waldeck Fusilier Battalion became the III (Fusilier) Battalion of the Prussian Infantry Regiment von Wittich (3rd Electoral Hessian) No. 83, and as such it remained until 1918.
This cockade was worn on the centre of the Feldmütze band below the Reich's cockade. This version was for enlisted ranks use and is one of several versions produced. It is attached to the cap using cotton thread.
