Waffen SS schutzemutze insignia used on a Alter Art Feldmutze

Article about: I love this piece! I thought I would bring this thread back to the top and see if there is any update to see if the cap has surfaced or is lost to time.

    I thought this was an interesting photo. Here is the original caption fom the archive:

    Titel: Hans Reimling

    Zusatz: Rußland, Kämpfe um Charkow, Februar/März 1943, Oberscharführer der Waffen-SS Hans Reimling, Zugführer in der 2./ SS-Pz.Rgt.1 der 1.SS-Panzer-Division "Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler", Ritterkreuz verliehen am 28. Februar 1943

    Here is an enlargement of the pic. Not brilliant I know due to the poor original. I would stake money on it being a beret eagle and I am not a betting man

    Looks like it might have been pink waffenfarbe piped too.

    Glad you all found it of interest.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The beret was apparently used in garrison wear well beyond 1941, at least if the photos in the French picture book on Division Hohenstaufen are to be believed. The key with this image of this chap with what surely are SS Pz beret insignia on the field cap is to look at his comrades, all of whom seem to have sort of cobbled together headwear, some of which I would wager was made behind the lines in something other than the Lubstein firm or August Mueller or retailed in the SS Kleiderkasse.

    An interesting image, and one of many from the years 1942 and 1943 that show Panzermaenner der Waffen SS (...und des Heeres). More interesting than the headwear are the marks of war on these mens' faces, which are far more powerful and persuasive to me than anything else.
    damit, basta.

    Great pic Ade, and I agree too, I think the insignia is from the beret as well.

    Best wishes

    I wouldn't say that the eagle is a armeagle..

    The eagle and skull are from the SS panzer beret.

    What a wonderful hat. I hope that it someday surfaces.
