    Hi Jan, they are real Edelweiss flowers.

    It was fashionable to say you had climbed up and picked one yourself.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, weren't these worn in the form of a patch by German Mountain Troops? John

    Hi John, that is right: worn as seen here as an arm insignia and also worn as a metal cap badge on the side of the Mountain cap and on the front of the schirmutze.

    Cheers, Ade.
