    Here's the military version (M1965) - as you can see, the same "logo" but a bit smaller and no red star on top - with M58 officers' badge - red star featured (gold):

    Great collection Fabe ! you have some cool items , these need to be conserved for the enjoyment and interest of future generations....you can see the influence in many items from the old KuK Army in the old Austro-Hungarian Empire days ! (especially the visor caps).........keep it up !
    Prost !Steve.

    Superb thread - can't understand why I have not found it before! My late Father-in-law was Hungarian - left right at the end of 56, he was in Budapest at the time of the uprising, but later went home to Pecs & thought he was safe, but was then warned he was on a list, so had to get out, leaving family and everything overnight - hard for us to understand what it must have been like today.

    We found this photo after he passed away - he is far right (so to speak!)

    Have been to Hungary a couple of times now and going back in the summer - would like to add a few Hungarian items to my collection, but have seen very little there - any tips on looking for militaria there?

    cool photo...should be around 1950-56 - with everyone wearing the new M50 helmets, exept the one on the far left...he's wearing the M47 - actually a repainted WW2 M35 German style Hungarian helmet.

    I only know one mil. shop in Budapest, where you can get all kinds of WW2 + cold war medals, uniforms, stuff...no website, only a facebook page. there you can see the map also:

    Thanks Fabe - will take a look at the link - an M50 helmet is definitely on my list - we took a trip from Budapest to a medieval church at Rakeve last year and passed a field full of aircraft, helicopters and military vehicles - we were told they belonged to a nearby military surplus shop, but they were closed - have tried to find them on the net to see when they are open.

    Other than that we went to the big open air market on Sundays at Pecs - saw a few WWII relic bits - all very over-priced and not really my interests - some post war Hungarian bits of uniform and a couple of hats amongst the car-boot stalls, but mostly in very moth-eaten and poor condition - I did get a nice WWII Hungarian Trench Art shell case with the Kossuth arms on it though for about 25 euros.

    UPDATE:

    ...and this one is NOT cold war era technically, but I won't open another thread for my post 1990 stuff

    Hungarian border-control field cap (VAM-ZOLL troops had/have this green stripe feature on grey) from the mid 1990s with a 1990s tri-color deputy officer's? badge (silver). I think these were used until 2000 - size 58:
