Marengo feuerwehrtuch is now my all time favourite cloth!
The Marengo tuch is black, as near as I can tell, but all the fire and post swatches are gradations of black and blue, to include blue black, that are very hard to distinguish in their more or less virginal state versus how one might them in a state of being worn and kept for 70 and more years.
Riddles in mysteries.
If you came here, I would show it to you, and you can decide. I do not want to bleach these things in the scanner, since the pristine quality of the colors is important, like the Rosetta stone, as it were.
Well, Marango sounds Italian but has an entry in the Spanish dictionary as being a dark grey. marengo translation English | Spanish dictionary | Reverso Collins

I have got to page eight and I felt like commenting,
I have been meaning to read this thread, but I dare say you need to have alot of time prepared if you are going to read it, unless you want to take breaks every several pages.
Though I like minty items, I quite enjoy bad conditioned items as when they have holes you get to see inside the cap inside the craftwork.
Here is a german war time wedding, including all sorts of caps, from the top hat to the soldier's caps down the aisle.
But I do say that most caps one day will turn to nothing like thier cork and foam comfort bands.
Happy new-year gentlemen,
