    The red lining was actually a result of tests carried out in mid 1940 by the Tropical Institute at the University of Hamburg who deduced through various tests that the colour red was the best lining colour to deflect the UV rays passing through the cap's outer shell, while also allowing the transfer of body heat through the top of the head.
    The Germans were well aware of UV danger, even to the point of differing UV tolerances on the Zeiss/Umbral goggle lense types.
