    The first officer Field cap is wartime , The coloured furazhka is late 1940s on . Post war curved visor and the crown starts to get bigger. The star I think is a 1947 pattern which is more rounded than wartime ones .

    Hello,

    The cut of the medical / service cap existed already during the war, as well as the fabrics. One can find WW2 pics of officers wearing caps with rounded, slooped visors, specially general officers. I don't know if they were made like that on purpose or just -due to the war effort- they used visors in stock from the previous models (which were not spade-shaped) or they re-used the tools used to shape the previous models to increase production rate.

    This is post-war mainly because of the <<Voentorg>> label inside. These were military stores.

    I have one cap exactly from the same production run (cut, materials and markings) in better shape, if I have time, I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    As for the last field cap in woollen gabardine cloth, I've seen some posts claiming this fabric is post-war (fifties). I would like to know why, as I have seen M1935 uniforms -specially for senior officers- made of the same fabric. I myself own a NKVD tunic (external pockets) made of such cloth and I see no reasons to have it cathegorically classed as post war (at least in the MVD 1952 regulations officer's drawings clearly show external pockets gyms).
    Also tomorrow, I'll post my field service cap
