    Default Russian Hat?

    Guys,

    Not my area but I have just been more or less given this so it is probably wrong? I would be keen to hear from the experts, thanks in advance.

    Guys,

    Thanks for your initial thoughts, I have looked at Dimas thread about these and it appears to be missing another metal star? there is a hole and thread on the inside. Where would I find one to make it complete? The big stars are like waffenfarbe? What does plain red mean infantry?
    Thanks

    Depends on which cockade you want to apply.

    I have seen the earlier model 1918 (Hammer, and Plow) cockade on them, and the later hammer, and sickle cockade.

    If I understand correctly, the red star would be general Army, or military, which would include infantry.

    I have seen this same style budenovka with royal blue star, and piping for Cavalry, and the green for border troops.

    Jock, from the images, the star seems to be brick red - NKVD State Security Troops.

    If it just plain red, Boridin is absolutely correct.

    As it is a late 20s/early 30s example, I would try and find one of these:

    PS - Jock, you are in Germany. So, IMO it should not be a problem finding one of these...

    This looks like a good one, but I've been told that the Russian film industry made a million of these for some Revolutionary era epic, in which half the Soviet Army was mobilized as extras.
    Most of those we see in North America come from this stock. They're cheap but it good nick.

    The model of 1919 was the primary example reproduced for the parade of 1967.
