Postwar cap--not Austrian, but German.
Not sure of the organisation---could be mining, but they usually have a black velvet band.
NEC SOLI CEDIT
it is not an Austrian cap and it is not a pre- but a postwar cap. The cockade is one of the BRD. Could be a fireman's cap but the colour of the piping appears to be red - firemen's caps piping were more carmine.
What exactly does the tag in the sweat diamond say? Schw. Gmünd could be Schwäbisch Gmünd, a town in Baden-Württemberg/Germany. The rest is illegible - coud you post a better picture?
One of the specialists will tell you what exactly it is.
EDIT: Stonemint was quicker than me - not for the first time!

Bravo, Wolfgang. It is Schwaebisch Gmuend, plainly.
Servus, Andreas. Wir sind alle sehr froh beisammen.
Thank you all! The text inside is: Franz Stelzner - Schw. Gmünd - Kiesdeker 4/1.
Froh zu sein bedarf es wenig, und wer froh ist...
Erinnert mich an die Volksschulzeit, schöner Kanon! Wenn man denn (noch) froh sein könnte...
The imponderabilia of life.
levaid: HPL2008 is right, it is Kiesäcker! (Which doesn't help to identify the cap.)
