    Default WH-Gebirgsjäger Officer's Schirmmütze

    Just picked this up from one of my favorite dealers, John Telesmanich.
    This is a Wehrmacht true Officer's GJ visor made by a very rare maker, Josef Worda of Innsbruck.
    Worda was a Hoflieferant during the K.u.K era, and was primarily a uniform tailoring house (and a very elite one at that).
    Worda then made uniforms and headgear for the Austrian Bundesheer from 1919-1938, up to the time of the Anschluss.
    After that, they supplied the Wehrmacht with tailored uniforms and visors.

    There is no doubting this is GJ and not Beamte:

    Eagle is high on the cap to accomodate the Edelweiss. No evidence of a moved eagle. Prongs do not go thru the lining:

    Hat is a wartime Trikot. If issued, it was not worn more than a few times.

    Sweatband is a 1/2 fold-over with the other 1/2 hand-sewn.

    Note the tailor-style tag sewn onto the lining, and the celluloid diamond sewn over it.

    This is only the 2nd Worda I have seen in all my years of collecting:

    Nice cap Chris , congrats.

    A maker you dont come across very often, interesting how simple and nice the makers label/tag looks and how similar if not the
    same weave pattern on the letters "WORDA".. are very much like the weave pattern on the Yellow (Deutsche Wehrmacht armbands).

    Chris have you looked at the inside of the sweat band some Gebirgsjäger Schirmmützen have a green unit marking ?

    What an amazing hat! I've never seen a Worda before, they certainly are unique. Am I right in saying that the underside of peak has been left unpainted?

    Alec, no markings, as Officer's were not required to have their hats "gepruft".

    Thanks Ben (and good eyes). The visor itself seems to be some sort of ersatz material, and they only finished it on the outside.
