ID:	282652This cap was made by the same maker, and was the property of Rommel's driver. I sold it. The piping was garish in its color and width, and against regulations, something which was also entirely normal for cavalry officers in the old armies, as well.
    damit, basta.

    I know the Kaiserreich purists snub their noses at KR visors made during the TR, but the quality & shape is light-years beyond 1918:
    The quality of anything in 1918 in Germany was pretty abysmal granted the effects of total war, the British blockade, rationing by the military government of Hindenburg and Ludendorff, and the onset of general hunger.Name:  schlachtheimatbo0.jpg

    Here's a group shot of the caps in order of appearance.......

    top right begins with 1871 all way to the bottom shelf and the end of the Second Reich in 1918.

    The reason for the space.....I'm still looking for one elusive visor to complete my collection of this era

    Attachment 261721


    If anyone is wondering.....The tunic is an engineer officers walking out dress circa 1927 onwards. I like it because it's wearer served across the time period I collect caps for. he served in the kaiser's army, stayed in the reichswehr and as the tunic has post 1936 collar tabs and an embroidered breast eagle kept on going upto WW2.

    cheers

    DOVA did exist during the KR. They appear to have been an early version of the OKK, and put out multiple catalogs, and one could have a membership card. The symbol is a combined anchor/sword, reflecting the army and navy:

    It's actualy quite astonishing how many weekly/monthly publications regarding a thousand different topics were published in Germany between the turn of the century and 45.
    All very high quality as well with lots of full spread photos.

    We all assume that Life magazine was the forerunner of such publications but it's not true..

    Indeed - too bad I can't make out much of the front pages because of the resolution. A bit about "The Red Russia" is some of the fragments visible to my eyes. The Russian revolution and its aftermath of course was a very hot topic in Germany at this time.

    Life magazine in 1936 was a copy of European illustrated weeklies, of which the Germans were pioneers, but also in the UK. However, Life surely did not invent the genre at all. However, in its day, Life was as good as the German illustrated weeklies.
    The amount of periodicals and books in Germany remains a great pleasure to this correspondent.
