    Default Military Police/Recruiting officer visor cap

    Apologies if I posted this Erel cap previously. I stongly believe that the waffenfarbe is orange, or orange-red for Military Police or Recruiters.
    When I bought it, I asked for a few opinions, which concluded artillery. The seller was an old collector, not a dealer, and made no claims as to color.
    If I put this cap up against my artillery cap, the difference in piping color is striking.
    Opinions appreciated, and thanks.

    Hi Bob

    tricky one.

    looks more red to me on those pics. Got a shot of the two together ?

    I have an arty erel that also looks at first glance orange red but is actually red when put against a real "orange-red".

    The fact is the fabre colours for red like green vary enormously. Sometimes its a leap of faith .

    here is my arty "orange red".....

    Going by your photos I agree with Tony that it is Artillery.

    Let's try these photos against an artillery cap.

    My cap is cap A. Thanks to KarlS for the great photos.

    Tricky call on these shots but I,m still going for ARTY.

    I know it's really frustrating with these colours and I have been there myself with the arty/orange cap i posted earlier.

    sorry but I like to err on the side of caution. Hands on and your own judgement on the day.....if you like it and it's orange to you, go for it.

    cheers

    To be honest I would say Artillery too.

    Cheers, Ade.
