Please Help-Luftwaffe General’s Cockade

Post by HistoryNut0808 » 03 Aug 2023 18:56

Hi, I’m new here and couldn’t find anywhere else for some insight. I wish it would let me send files but it kept saying ‘Error. Too large.’ I gave up. Anyways. I acquired a Luftwaffe General’s cockade, but it is made of metal with a gold colored gild on the front. It also has ‘Bomisa Milano’ on the back. Would anyone know why a very limited amount of Luftwaffe General cockades were metal (Looking online, I have seen one or two more that were metal and had gold gild), and for what purpose they had? Also, why did Italy make some of them? Thanks a bunch for anyone’s expertise!!
