    Hi Tom, no I am sorry you are just wrong here. Clearly you need to learn more about this, so thse pics will help you.

    An early "Pekuro" made cap from 1955.

    An pic from the Feb 1959 edition of "Der Deutscher Soldat".

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade is correct--there were 2 versions, and the first style was only used for a short while--after that they went with the KM-style rank designation.

    Easiest way to spot the re-badged BRD-LW visors is by the more flattened "ribs" on the band compared to the TR-LW ones.

    I don't know why, but I just never cared for these BW visors--too much polyster/plastic and tacky looking insignia. They all have the same basic shape as well, despite being made by different makers.

    No worries Tom, it is always a learning curve. It never stops!
