    Keep them coming.....

    A 1915 regulation service cap for a Wurttemburg (reserve) officer with the field grey peak. This one has a nice white silk liner and peak offset with a black oilskin sweatband.



    It's one of my favourites.

    cheers

    Hi

    Here is my latest find.

    A drap old grey field cap and not a spectacular generals formal cap I'm afraid.

    This one does have one nice twist though...............under the masking band which is original to the cap is a lovely blue velvet band.

    Hi

    Got this one on a punt and broke the capital rule of buying it without seeing a shot of the inside I love living dangerously (sometimes)

    ANYWAY TURNED OUT OK....

    This is an Infantry officers service cap circa 1916 onwards I would say. It has the lovely whipcord field grey material and the bottom material is wool cloth as seen on the later war versions. Their is no mothing on the crown. The insides turned out a beauty as they are nice gold silk lining but the crown lining is paper ! The peak is pressed cardboard and the sweatband is oilcloth.

    The peak is also detachable as found only on the really "rare late war officer to soldat versions"

    It will of course be affixed in due course but allows us the chance to see the peak up close.

    cheers

    This Prussian officer visor just set a record price on Ebay of US $1,226.77. All I can think of is that the removeable band was the reason:

    Hi and happy new year to you all,

    Keeping on a medical theme here is my Christmas cap and first purchase of the year........................

    It's a 1908 model sanis or stretcher bearer field cap. It is missing the chin strap but has the grey leather peak making it a war time production as these came in from 1915 onwards. The cockade I believe is for Lübeck.

    Cheers

    Tony

    That's right Tony, no red band and no bottom piping, just feldgrau all over!

    It's named Hptm Nachtigall (I think but it's difficult to make out) Some research turned up only 2 Officers named Nachtigall in the Imperial Army.

    Nachtigall, Offizier-Stellvertreter
    Nachtigall, Oberleutnant der Reserve

    I was told that they didn't abreviate regimental marking with the "/" during WWI but I don't know about that. Maybe it was written in the cap post war? it certainly wasn't done recently.

    What's your take on that?
