Historical Period


This style of helmet was originally invented in 1842 by King Frederick of Prussia. The style may have been inspired by similar helmets worn by the Russian army at the time.

Similar styles were worn by the German military, firemen, and police force during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Although typically associated with the Prussian army, the helmet was widely imitated by other armies during this period.

Inspiration

Original Culloden targe in the Royal Armouries Museum

Quisque sed congue risus. Curabitur faucibus, purus sed interdum ultrices, nisl metus fringilla enim, sit amet euismod nibh est nec lectus. Proin condimentum diam ac pellentesque euismod. Nullam vel pretium odio. Suspendisse vel enim vitae justo dapibus rhoncus vitae et ante.

A similar targe is on display at the National Museum of Scotland.
