    Default Need help. Identifying deathshead (hussar?)

    Hello

    This totenkopf with crossed daggers and bones was found from my grandfathers house after he died.

    He served in continuation war so I first thought this totenkopf cockade was german origin because Germany had military in Finland at WW2. I have googled a lot but I havent seen any german totenkopf which have both crossed swords/daggers and bones. Also the skull is different from which is usually seen in german use.

    The nearest one is Polish Death Head Husars which seems to have oakleaf cluster in pictures.

    I know this is pretty lucky guess but maybe some one can help me identify this.

    Yours,
    Heikki

    Hi Heikki, and welcome to the forum!

    I do not recognise it as being Polish or German.

    Cheers, Ade.
