    hi Ben

    Not sure about the "/" theory but sounds plausible. I'll check my sources and see if there are any examples.

    maybe the info was written in post war, by family maybe or the veteran himself, not sure if he would write it in during the war.

    You'd have to have big boots if you were going to nick the captains hat !!

    cheers

    Some very interesting information just posted on my WAF thread that might help all of us. This is in relation the letter b in the handwritten II/b.JR 22 inside the cap.

    "It is indeed a 'b'.

    But, not meaning to split hairs, but only to be accurate, it's called 'Kurrentschrift', not Sütterlin.

    Sütterlinschrift was a modernized version of the more cursive Kurrent (16th century-early 20th century). It was developed in 1911, and only introduced to Prussian (not all German) schools in 1915.

    Sütterlin didn't become widely used in Germany until the 1920s and only became official in all German schools in 1935. The Nazis banned it along with all other old style "blackletter" fonts (including Kurrent, Fraktur etc.) in 1941, claiming them (falsely) to be Jewish in origin.

    It was re-introduced into German schools after 1945 and taught until about 1970. It's still taught in design schools, but not generally in the population so that many Germans can't read it.

    Any script seen in pass books, on documents, uniforms etc., from WWI and before would be in one of several forms of Kurrentschrift.

    As for the hat...While Imperial uniforms are not my area, I do know something about Freikorps and Reichswehr. It could have continued to be worn in the Freikorps or Vorläufiges Reichwehr only until May 1919. After that, the lower cockade would have included an oakleaf wreath. In September 1919, the lower cockade was replaced by a Weimar black eagle in a gilt oval."
