    Default Show us your Bundeswehr "soft" caps....

    Gents, there is a variety of soft cloth caps in the Bundeswehr both past and present, lets see yours ! I will start the ball rolling with this 2006 Bergmutze, a Gebirgsjagertruppen (Mountain troops) , very much in the WW2 mould....this is an enlisted mans/NCO version. The cap is also sporting (unofficially) a stick pin bronze proficiency badge ! Prost ! Steve.

    Next up, an October 1967 made Heer side cap, part of the unpopular "Filzlaus" combat uniform of the 1960's....
    Prost ! Steve.

    And this is the cap from the uniform which was originally issued as an arbeit/fatigue uniform in the early 60's, the famed "Moleskin" uniform and worn well into the 90's ousting the "Filzlaus" uniform in terms of popularity amongst troops of the Bundeswehr.....being replaced by the "Flecktarn" uniform, but more of that later ! these caps can be bought for pence from car boot sales, fairs and jumble sales, but every collection should have one ! This a May 1983 made example.
    Prost ! Steve.

    And the last for tonight, a 2003 made feldmutze in "Flecktarn" (5 colour) cammo, together with the "Wustentarn" (Desert 3 colour) is the current cammo combat uniform of the Bundeswehr, and you will see most soldiers wearing it on duty and on leave.......again a cheaply bought cap for a couple of pounds !
    Prost ! Steve.

    For the Luftwaffe lover, a 1974 EM/NCO side cap......note the "yellow" piping, unique to the post war Luftwaffe, not waffenfarbe, as it just denotes the cap as "Luftwaffe" and not a particular arm of service or branch within the Luftwaffe, as in WW2. Prost ! Steve.

    Frenchy, great little caps there ! I have yet to obtain an example of the field cap (M43 look a like), they are rare, only worn in the 1960's i believe......
    Prost ! Steve.
