    Default Can anyone tell me about these three items?

    I received these family items which I've determined to be from the Bundeswehr.

    Here's the information that I could come up with.

    I think the wreath and crossed swords is some sort of Bundeswehr hat badge manufactured by OLC (Overhoff & Cie Ludenscheid).

    I think the Edelweiss is from the Bundeswehr Gebirgsjager.

    The Munich Maid seems to be some sort of hat badge, but I know nothing about it. It may not be Bundeswehr.

    Can you guys tell me anything else about them? What era do they come from? What is the Munich Maid hat badge/pin?

    Thanks.

    Someone on another forum correctly identified the star shaped one as being an old style Munich City Police Badge. That one was giving me the most trouble.

    Also, thanks tempelhof. You posted at the same time.

    It looks like a Police cap badge to me but as to which city i am not sure and the other two badges are post war army cap wreath and post war Edelweiss as worn on the post war ski caps

    Does anyone know more about the crossed swords and wreath hat badge? Who would have worn this from the Bundeswehr?

    yes, this is a style from the 50's or 60's if i recall. maybe even 70's. it is not the current style.

    i think the crossed swords insignia is West German Bundeswehr Infantry. i welcome correction, but i believe it's infantry.
