Very rare general cockade of the Third Reich police
One of the personal finds of the author of the site. A rare general cockade of the Third Reich police.
There is also an opinion that this cockade belonged to the water police of the Third Reich.
Water police (Wasserschutzpolizei) was the equivalent of the coast guard and river police. Tasked with the safety and security of Germany’s rivers, harbours, and inland waterways, the group also had authority over the SS-Hafensicherungstruppen (“harbour security troops”) which were Allgemeine-SS units assigned as port security personnel.
