    Default Austro-Hungarian Infantry Officers Service Cap (I think)

    Hi

    My first ever WW1 Austrian officers cap............depending on the feedback about to come that is..............

    Not my area of expertise so a leap of faith buying it but I liked the cap so why not.

    It's got the monogram of K for karl so must be post 1916 and interestingly black not pike grey. The braid looks tarnished rather than yellow so I'm hoping it is officers rather than NCO/officer cadet.

    The picture did not come with the cap but is for illustrative purposes.

    Fingers crossed and please let me know if I've got it right.

    cheers

    Tony

    Tony,

    It's a nice wartime cap for a junior officer. Perfect example. I don't think this pattern came in gray? These were worn in the field, but tended to be more of a walking out dress cap. It wouldn't have been worn in the trenches of active sectors.

    Very nice cap Tony!
    I had a few Austrio - Hungarian headresses in my previous collection.
    They used to be cheap those day's compared to other nationality's.
