    Frenchy, a super Luftwaffe enlisted mans/NCO's peaked cap, probably 1970's-80's, although a "Pekuros" made cap, sold (private purhase, better quality.) I believe, through the KKB Koblenz shop (usually the suppliers of Officers uniforms and the like), and therefore not issue....for some reason most if not all caps sourced here do not appear to be dated, unlike issue caps. As a footnote:- KKB stands for "Kleider Kasse Bundeswehr" an outlet in the city of Koblenz for the purchase of Officers kit. Prost ! Steve.

    Zwerge, thanks for that great photo, I recognise one the officers, is it Erich Hartmann, but the other eludes me. I show my latest aquisition, a pre-1971 EN/NCO Panzer/Air Defence cap from 1968, notice the darker shade of grey used on this cap when compared to post 71 caps and the ribbed cap band compared to the newer cap. The walking out uniform of the Bundeswehr changed or should it be evolved ? in 1971, a standardised shade of grey (lighter) was introduced, (tunics prior were any thing from light grey thro to almost black !) fake or double cuffs were out, and the material the uniform was made from was a much lighter weave, some say the quality dropped ! Is the Waffenfarbe Pink or Coral Red ? Panzer if pink, Army Flak/Air defences if coral red, they are similiar, opinions please....I leaning towards Air Defence. However, heres the new cap......
    Prost ! Steve.
    The general officer is the chief of staff of the Lw at the time the picture was taken, Erich Kammhuber.
    damit, basta.

    Gents, picked this May 1968 "Bamburger" made "Sanitatstruppe" (Medical troops) cap for 99p ! (Just over a Euro/Dollar).....notice the subtle waffenfarbe colour difference between this cap and frenchy's cap, mittelblau v dunkelblau, not much in it ! Prost ! Steve.
