The Stories Behind the Helmet

The Badisches Pionier-Bataillon Nr 14, raised in 1850 and attached to the XIII. Armeekorps, was not just a military unit. It was a band of brothers who faced the trials and tribulations of World War I together. This pickelhaube served as their loyal companion through the trenches of trench warfare, the battles that shaped history, and the heartaches of separation from loved ones.

Worn exclusively by the soldiers of this esteemed Bataillon, this helmet carries not just the weight of its historical significance but also the spirit of the brave individuals who wore it. It witnessed their laughter, tears, camaraderie, and resilience in the face of adversity.

We invite you to connect with the human side of history. Our description serves as a time travel companion, bringing to life the valor, sacrifice, and emotions of those who lived through the Imperial German era and WWI.
