    Default Luftwaffe NCO's Schirmmütze Unit Markings?

    Hello all!

    I am a 14 year old collector relatively new to cloth German headgear. I recently bought a pre-war Luftwaffe signals visor. It is a private purchase cap, and it has what looks to be unit markings stamped onto the sweatband. Can someone give me some help on identifying these markings???

    Attached are the pics of the cap and markings

    I can't help you out on any markings, but it looks like a nice early cap. Where did you pick this one up from?

    I picked it up from Regimental Depot Militaria Home Page, in fact the cap still shows up on his website because he hasn't updated it if you would like to take a look.

    Thanks Ryan,
    It's good to know that others my age love collecting this type of stuff. I started when I was 11 and I've been hooked on militaria ever since, it's always a good day when you bring home a new addition to the collection, because it's sure to go up in value over the years (not that I would ever sell off my collection).

    I had this cap in hand at the recent SOS; it's a nice early signals cap, with the all leather visor & early eagle. I purchased a very similiar flight/ para cap from the same dealer last year.
    As to the markings, 8.komp means, of course, 8th company. My guess is that LNEA II, is the stamp for Luftwaffe Nachrichten ( Signals) Ersatz ( Replacement) Abteilung ( battalion, or detachment) number II.

    Nice cap! That is one hell of a paper route for a 14-year-old...

    Hi

    and welcome to the world of collecting. That's a great visor, the markings hopefully have been covered and make sense. You notice a large roman numeral I in the picture, this may well be the issue acceptance stamp that marked the cap as "best" or still in the stores. when issued the stamp changed to II. This is mainly on clothing as well but was a hangover on caps from the reichswehr days. It's a nice early contract cap from 1936 and for the airforce that's really early !

    congrats

    cheers
