    Gents, my latest...a " Bordeauxrot" (Burgundy red) piped cap for the "ABC-Abwehrtruppe" (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical warfare troops) a rather harder to find cap than most...its a Bamberger, September 1973 made mutze.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hello, I am the wardrobe mistress at a local theatre group and we are cleaning out our costume wardrobe. And I came across these three hats. The blue hat is in the best condition. the one with the blue band is un-altered but in mediocre condition as can be seen by the pic. The hat with the red band is actually the same as the blue banded hat but has been altered, the original blue band is underneath. I also have the peak of a third hat the same as the last two hats mentioned, with the leaf badges on it. My question is we are clearing out costumes and I am wondering if these are worth anything or are we best keeping them as costumes.Attachment 355627Attachment 355628Attachment 355629

Jane, I have started a thread on the two caps I could not I.D. here http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/USA-br...73/#post602166 lets hope some one knows what they are !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks heaps Steve, I had the same thought on the last two but couldn't find any reference for them. They do have a side button on them which looks like a horn on cord. I am going to show this site to my husband, he is sure to enjoy it.

    Yeah , i know Steve, but you would'nt believe how many amateur dramatic societies have loads of these in their costume stores, we even had a full Jordanian officers uniform, an original zip fronted battledress jacket and over 100 BW side caps, it really goes against the grain when i'm asked to do yet another uniform conversion

    Is there somewhere that has all of the badges from German and West German hats? I have about 20 of them the I recently acquired and would like to identify them.

    dthomas, first welcome to the BW sub forum ! hope you frequent this section with your collection ! now down to business.. I will post your photographs one by one and explain each cap, so bear with me...it appears that many of your caps have the wrong badge on, the large badges with some form of depiction upon them are Beret badges, and are not correct on peaked caps.
    First one:- top, left to right, 1)Panzer cap with incorrect Signals beret badge attached. 2) Feldjager (Military police) with incorrect Heeresflieger beret badge attached. Bottom, left to right, 3)Infantry/Jager/Fallshirmjager (Green waffenfarbe) with a Fallschirmjager beret badge attached. 4) Luftwaffe cap with incorrect Medical beret badge attached. All are nice pre 1970 caps. I show the format of the Bundeswehr peaked cap, all including Army/Navy and Luftwaffe had the same format, cockade on top, wreath with arms on bottom (crossed swords for Army, wings for Luftwaffe and anchor motif for Navy).
    Prost ! Steve.....see next post for your other caps.
    Prost ! Steve.
