What does the cross on this M1881 emblem mean


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I saw this M1881 for sale and I have a friend who collects Chaplin helmets, I wanted to know if I should tell him about this one, But I'm not sure what that cross stands for on these helmets, e.g. Medical, Religious???

Thank you Woodymyster.

I appreciate the quick and detailed reply. It was a learning experience.

No need to contact my friend on that one.

 

I want to add one of these types to my collection someday to represent what My GGuncle has in the pic I posted about him.

It seems as if I need to do some serious studying before I even attempt to buy one. Considering I didn't know the difference in the type of helmet you mentioned in your reply.

All I knew was that it was a Cav. plate and the spike looked tilted.

Thanks Again.
