    Special thanks to Rossi on this one as well. I have rarely studied cloth hats, visors etc. I've seen many visors that people say are fake and then show a real one. (FB)...

    I thought that order was only regarding actual captured Soviet headgear , before the Germans started to reproduce their own example .
