    The army caps for enlisted ranks of the 1960s appeared here in the last twenty years, but I cannot recall examining early Lw d Bundeswehr caps of the era as to the Grundfarbe.

    German air force uniforms today are a very dark blue, with a kind of Prussian blue (classicial Prussian blue, mind you...) aspect to them.



    Enlisted Lw d Bw caps from the 1980s or so appeared in US surplus stores with the big "A" in former times. As caps go they have somewhat less poetry than the older army caps.

    Happy hats.
    damit, basta.

Size:  32.1 KBVery nice tableau with instructive comparison of the passage of the 20th century. The 1960s army caps were legion for awhile.

    But I adhere to my point that present day Luftwaffe has a kind of Prussian blue tint to it, in the darker tone, but the textiles are, of course, full of plastic in most cases and look dorky.

    The USAF uniforms are also kevlar or like. The few RAF uniforms I do see in normal life appear to be more woolen, but the UK has better sheep, of course.

    I like woolens, as can be derived from my 6445 posts.

    Tom...I do not think this one is Bundeswehr, as it has no black band between the peak and crown, and it looks as if it never has...they were as far as I know permanantly attached to the cap, i.e. sewn on.....it could be DRK (German Red Cross), as their caps were constructed in a similiar fashion to this cap, all in the same material and colour. Mine is the same maker, but made in 1971....note the difference in construction......colour and band, and the grey piping, not the same shade as the cap material. Side by side there is a vast differance !
    Prost ! Steve.

    that would make sense as it doesn't have any holes for a cap badge but thanks for the help
