    Default A quick look at NCO caps 1871 to 1920

    Hi

    Just finished off an idea I've been working on for a while.

    Finally got the last piece in the puzzle in the shape of a 1867 model infantry cap.

    As such I present a .....

    ....... "snap shot" (photo pun) of the development of the nco cap from start to finish of the second Reich.

    Thank you very much Spandau for this beautiful and educational display! I have yet to acquire a single pre WW2 visor cap. Your caps are truly wonderful!

    Thanks. It's an idea I'm currently expanding on and have a project in hand to write a book on the development of the army cap.

    Hopefully it will come to fruition later in the year/early next year.
