    Default A uniform and caps factory.

    Some might recall that I cleared (in 1993) a factory that used to made uniforms and caps for over many years. It was called Indian Caps Antwerp.I have been selling many of it over all those years, but I have still got some remains...
    They used to work for the Germans during the war, but most of those die's where sold rather quickly, allong with the machines. I didn't had any intrest in collecting militaria at that time.
    The warehouse I have now has to be moved, so here I am again with all that stuff to move. The plan was to sort it out, but more things got in front of them over all that time.
    I ll give you some pic's of what it all is from time to time, when I get tyred of the job.
    To start, here is part of the die to make,so I think, the metal kokarde of the Dutch pre-war cap.
