    Hi

    The cap I think may well be a 1920's made item. I'm sorry to put forward a view that may not fit with any expectations of the cap being a WW1 pilots.

    My rationale is that the Imperial caps did not have a celluloid in the crown and the fleiger cap had a field grey cloth crown and black cap band with red piping for specialist troops.

    Looking at the monitor is your cap green with brown cap band ? Is the piping grey ?

    Based on this my initial guess would be maybe a state police (in this case wurttemburg looking at the cockade).

    hope this helps set the discussion in motion. I may well be very wrong !

    cheers

    A very fine Bavarian Pilots Badge, would be good to see the back though. Any makers mark or Silver content number (800 or such)?

    The badge pic was just a example for the uniform to help ID the cap. I do not own this badge my self sorry.
