Straight from the estate of a well-known military antique collector which includes over 30 helmets and pickelhaubes from pre-WW1 and WW2 era that will be listed on my page in the near future (pictures available upon request). Anything mentioned herein is simply my uneducated opinion. The condition of this helmet is excellent, showing no signs of trauma or damage. The exterior leather is in great shape with no signs of crazing and minimal wear. The fur is still mostly intact but looks like some of it has fallen out over time which is to be expected from an item this age. The cloth liner shows light wear and some of the stitches have loosened, but it’s still in great condition. The leather chin strap shows some cracking from age but is still solid and fully intact. This particular helmet has quite the history behind it as it belonged to Royal Air Force Bristol fighter pilot squadron leader Alan Thomas Kingston Shipwright. A veteran of the Great War who was shot down behind enemy lines east of Ypres in August 1917, whilst serving with 19 squadron. Taken POW, Shipwright was a persistent escaper and one of the’Holzminden Tunnellers’ – taking part in the largest and most celebrated POW escape of the Great War, July 24/25 1918. His full history can be found by clicking on the following link. This does not appear to be a reproduction but its authenticity cannot be guaranteed. Stand seen in pictures not included.

THE SOCIETY WAS GRANTED ITS ARTICLES AND THE PREFIX “ROYAL” BY KING GUSTAF III IN 1772. THE SOCIETY WAS GIVEN PERMISSION TO ISSUE MEDALS IN 1802, AND CONFERRED THE RIGHT TO WEAR THE MEDALS TO THE RECIPIENT. THE SOCIETY WAS A FOCAL POINT FOR PERSONS OF PROMINENCE IN THE FIELDS OF GOVERNMENT, TRADE, SCIENCE, AGRICULTURE AND INDUSTRY, AND GAVE THE SOCIETY MEMBERS A VENUE TO DISCUSS NEW DEVELOPMENTS AND DISCOVERIES AND THEIR APPLICATION IN THEIR VARIOUS FIELDS. 1950, DEPICTED ON THE MEDAL’S OBVERSE, WAS THE OLDEST AND SECOND-LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH OF SWEDEN. A CONSERVATIVE, HE WAS THE LAST MONARCH TO BE SUPREME HEAD OF THE SWEDISH ARMED FORCES AND TO INTERVENE DIRECTLY IN THE POLITICS OF HIS NATION. ASCENDING TO THE THRONE IN 1907, HE REPLACED LIBERAL PRIME MINISTER KARL STAAF IN 1914. GUSTAF PLACED A FIGUREHEAD, HJALMAR HAMARSKÖLD IN THE POSITION WHO REMAINED IN PLACE THROUGHOUT MOST OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR.

GUSTAF WAS POPULAR THROUGHOUT HIS REIGN, AND CONCEDED TO THE PRINICPALS OF PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY AND TO BEING THE FIGUREHEAD OF THE COUNTRY. IN 1943, THE YEAR THIS MEDAL WAS AWARDED, SWEDEN WAS AGAIN NUETRAL IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR. ALTHOUGH GUSTAF URGED THE COALITION GOVERNMENT OF SWEDEN TO GIVE IN TO NAZI GERMANY’S LOGISTICS REQUESTS, HE APPARENTLY DID NOT SUPPORT FACISM OR THE NAZIS, AND TO REFUSE THEM WOULD HAVE POSSIBLY PROVOKED AN INVASION.

Kingdom of Yugoslavia Royal House of Karadjordjevic Order Of The Crown V. ATTENTION: Dear Customers, you will receive exactly the same item which you see on the pictures, not similar or other. Please read the description carefully and review the photos. The Order of the Crown is an order founded on April 5, 1930 by King Alexander I under the name of the Order of the Yugoslav Crown in commemoration of the change of the official name of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The order that was awarded in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and today is awarded by the head of the royal house of Karadordevic. The name of the order was postponed as early as 1911. Before the beginning of the Balkan Wars in 1911, Prime Minister Nikola Pasic drafted a law on the establishment of orders. That project was realized only nineteen years later. King Alexander I, the founder of the order, was regent of the Kingdom of Serbia from 1914, regent of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes from 1918, and ascended the throne in 1921. During 1929, political crises and growing strong separatist movements in the country forced the King to temporarily suspend The Constitution also encouraged national unity, which eventually led to a change in the country’s name. The order is organized in 5 degrees, and was awarded to citizens who took the lead in the work to achieve national unity and cooperation, or for services to the Crown, the state and the nation in public services, as well as to foreign citizens, mainly for diplomatic services. The Order of the (Yugoslav) Crown was older than the Order of Saint Sava, and was worn on a dark blue ribbon. The order was awarded by the Crown. The Order’s insignia were made by Artis Bertrand in Paris (France) and the Ygenen Brothers in Le Locle (Switzerland). Today, the order is again awarded by the head of the royal house of Karadordevic. Decorations in Argentina and Chile have artistic inspiration modeled on the Order of the Yugoslav Crown. Dimensions of order: 4,5. Cm x 9,5cm. Weight with a box: 96g.
