    Hi

    Saw this lying discarded and unloved in the E bay Jungle and had to give it a home...............

    It is a very early TR visor made by Otto Dittman of Dresden, interestingly as a Government contract cap. I have not seen one by this maker in this guise before so it looks like old Otto made caps for the Imperial Army, Reichswehr and Wehrmacht.

    It has the field grey cloth band dating it pre 1936 in manufacture, it has the manufacturer stamp but not a date.

    The sweat band is just about attached, unlike the peak, and is nicely marked with PB24 and was initially accepted by 5th kompanie as the best set, indicated by the " I " stamp. Found a home with 4 kompanie though and was issued to a man in the 1st gruppe or section of this kompanie.

    Pioneer Battalion 24 was formed 1936 so this cap had been sitting on the shelf in the stores for a bit............
