I disagree, the white piping would indeed indicate the HG Division, officers on the other hand, had silver piping on the turn ups of their sidecaps.
(the cap shown by Fallschirmjager1941 also has silver officer piping, and not white piping).
If this cap was one that had been upgraded from an OR's cap, then twisted silver piping would have been used.
The 1942 date is interesting, as the white piped caps were primarily done pre-war, but... an interesting cap !
I would agree with Bob.

hi chaps - many thanks - the white piping and date threw me too, so do we think this is a pre-war cap pressed into service in 1942?
Apologies for the misinformation.
