Swedish Side Cap

Article about: G'day All Annoyed from this ads?   Not sure where to post this one as it's Swedish. I must sound like a novice asking so many questions, but it goes with being solo in collecting- here

    Haven't a clue, Rene, but it does look kind of "minty".

    Anything on the back of the insignia ?





    ( You aren't really "solo in collecting"........

    Thanks again Steve

    I was reluctant to bend the pins, due to it being minty.
    I did it as far as I'd go.
    Can't make out the maker here and appears that there is no date.

    All I can say is the wool material and lining are the same as found on wartime dated Swedish tunics. But I know nothing about this army's caps etc. The only reason I know about the tunics is back in the late 1970's we used to convert them to German tunics for re-enactment use.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It's the Swedish m/39 field cap. The cockade was introduced in 1941.

    I'm not really sure on this, but there are two possibilities:

    1. This pattern in the above post is the pre-war/early war pattern

    OR

    2. Different patterns because of different makers.

    _____________________________

    The side cap came in 1937 and was kept with the new m/39 uniform. I think that number 1 is correct, but I'm not certain.

    It seems odd the liner is made of leather and not cloth, so it could have been made for an officer.
