    Possibly polish reminds me of their traditional 4 point hats
    Similar but not the case - 4 point hats or rogatywkas are part of traditional costumes in Poland as well.
    The more I think of the hat - it might be a nurse of some kind.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Nah - it's just a regular everyday old Priest's cap.
    Not military, or even close.........

    Hi Michael, with regard to what my interests are, they are very broad. I have a large collection of WW2 uniforms and equipment from Britain, Germany, USA, Japan and I am starting to aquire some Soviet items. How about yourself?

    But why would a Polish hat bear the name of a maker in Lüdenscheid which is nearer Holland than Poland........?

    Cheaper hats there maybe?
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Hi again Douglas, Sorry for the delay in my reply, I missed your ressponse some how or other. I have some German WWII, medals, edged weapons, fags and uniforms etc but not a lot of other nationalities, more odds and ends than collections per see. I tend to go after post war as it is cheaper and safer. Do you ever get over Peterborough way? We could meet up sometime and talk militaria over a cup of tea if you are interested? We seem to have qite a bit in common. In any event, keep in touch.
    Cheers for now Michael R
