    A very unusual cap, no shortage of bling there then, very nice.

    I had not known that Brazil had fought with the Allies during WWII.

    Brazil has very important battles of Monte Cassino Monte Castelo, gain ground inch by inch in the Italian mountains. 25,000 soldiers faced one of the worst winters in Italy in 1944.
    Today I will post pictures of the new caps they arrived.
    thank you

    There is a very interesting story about this surrender that is told by some Brazilian ex-combatants, however, was never officially recognized, but I have heard it many times.
    During the German surrender asked two things.
    1st That no Brazilian touch the medals of surrendered soldiers;
    2nd That the Italian soldiers who fought with the Germans were not delivered to the Italian resistance who were communists and therefore would shoot all Italians.
    They say a Brazilian soldier pulled an iron cross of a German soldier and this could pull a gun and killed a Brazilian fighter, so it created a climate of tension, until the German commander drew his pistol and went to the German sergeant and he shot himself in the head of that sergeant.
    But this was never officially confirmed.

    But there is something unusual, the Brazilian general sent a 3rd Sergeant to receive the surrender of the German General, but he refused, was later sent a lieutenant, both are in this picture, so the official surrender was for an official Brazilian subordinate, General German felt humiliated and outraged by this fact. Only after all this the German general had direct contact with our generals.

    Hello Sir. Chris, thank you for your kind words.
    This week the cap in general, more expected should arrive, so I'm with him on hands put the photos of the cap.
    The latter cap belonged to a captain of the FEB that the return of Italy in World War II continued in the army and reached the rank of general, by the way, one of Brazil's greatest generals, and could happily buy your cap.
    Thank you.

    Caps used in the 1930s by the soldiers and officers, Brazilians.
    To date these have never met a cap on any Brazilian museum, hopefully buy one of these someday.
