Finnish Field Cap M/36

Article about: Dastier: Can you post more images of your cap? I find this variant interesting; it does not have the vertical seam to the body of the cap (where the cockade is pinned), and the buttoned port

    Dastier:
    Can you post more images of your cap? I find this variant interesting; it does not have the vertical seam to the body of the cap (where the cockade is pinned), and the buttoned portion does seem to be more akin to a German M43 cap, in that it is not as wide as is usually seen. Is it possible the Finns were influenced by their allies? Has anyone else noted such construction? Or is this truly a Lotta cap?

    I'll post more pics in the later in the week or next. My cap is very small, and was identified as a Finnish M43 Lotta cap when I purchased it. I cannot see it fitting on a man's head.

    Hi, you can tell the deference between Lotta caps and army caps because Lotta caps button from the right and army caps from the left. I have over 30 M/36 caps and they all button up from the left and every Lotta cap I have ever seen button up from the right
    Hope this helps.

    Hi, Yes Kemi's cap is a Lotta cap. It appears to have the heavier winter liner.
    Yes, the picture is an old one of a few of my caps.
    I don't really have a picture of all my M/36 caps together but attached is part of my Finnish head gear collection.
    I hope you like them as much as I do, the Finnish volunteer SS cap and Generals cap are my latest finds.

    Hello

    This might be a bit late reply, but I happened to come across this just now and decided to chip in.

    The two fieldcaps on the first page are Lotta Svärd hats. The easiest way to tell them apart from the M36 field caps the military uses is the fact that the flaps are buttoned on the other side.

    Where as the army M36 has right flap buttoned over the left one, the Lotta Svärd has it the opposite way. There's also other differences in the shape, such as the visor being different shape.
