    What is the intention from Redcoat? The thread indeed is a waste of time!
    I doubt he ever has seen any old TR manufacturing regulation and old cataloques....

    See post 4 from stonemint and 13 from Coleman.
    Since February 7 Redcoat did not answer and in my opinion he is just drawing
    up onto us! I doubt he knows about the expressions Vulkanfiberschirm, Lackschirm
    or lackiert or whatever!!

    Why closing the thread? Let him (Redcoat) do his word. Who knows what he has to say!
    Don't we all be "impressed"?

    Firstly I did not meen to upset anyone I was just curious as to why they (plastic) is never mentioned when it comes to visors as they clearly dd exist . This is taken from the Imperial War Museum aho clearly differentiate between the different materials used for Visors "

    IWM London
    Production date
    1938
    Materials

    badge: metal
    band: velvet
    cap: cloth
    peak: plastic


    Alternative Names

    SIMPLE NAME: headdress, German

    Creator

    Category
    uniforms and insignia


    This cap was part of the uniform worn by the SS. The SS were Hitler's personal bodyguard and the elite of the Nazi private army. When the Nazis came to power, the SS rapidly gained in strength, becoming the key instrument of terror and control. On Hitler's orders they murdered leaders of the rival SA during the 'Night of the Long Knives' (30 June 1934). The SS took charge of the concentration camps in June 1934 and gradually consolidated them into five permanent complexes. By 1936 their leader Heinrich Himmler had also taken control of the police, including the notorious Gestapo.
    History note

    Erel were one of the best military cap makers in German and numbered amongst their customers Hermann Wilhelm Goering.
    Physical description

The eagle and skull and crossbones badges in silver metal. Inside the crown of the cap SS symbol in gold and white. (Related items: cap, badges and cap cords)

    Allgemeine SS

    I'll try and upload a photograph later. Similarly, I have come across other references to `plastic' peaks' elswhere.

    Similarly, this is a Waffen SS Generals Cap on display at The Imperial War Museum, another one that does not meet the with many `expert' oppinions. As can see, not only is the cap unusual but the IPW uite clearly differentiate between the materials used between the cap above and this one which theys state is `Fibor'. I hope you find this of interest!
