    Feldmütze 1934

    Two Feldmützen 1934 are visible on the photo. Please note also the Feldbluse 1933 modified 1934 and the Reichswehr woolen vest (Gebirgsjäger variant has two waist pockets). If you click on this one, it's full screen...also, note the bayonet frog with retaining leather strap on the right, it means that these soldiers belong to a mounted unit...

    The Feldmütze 1934/35

    The Feldmütze 1934 was modified in 1935
    Special features : Hoheitsabzeichen worn on the crown, cockade worn on the sewn flap. The soutache is still V shaped but it's now sewn above the cockade. It's quite hard to find on the internet photos showing first pattern insignia for Feldmützen...so here they're dark green already...

    The soldier here belongs to a cavalry unit (note leather padded breeches)

    Note the different pipings.....dark on the Feldmütze, much lighter (most likely white) on the shoulderstraps...
