    Default Unknown DDR Mdi visor 1962

    I have had this 1962 dated visor for quite a while(technically got it in a bundle for £6) however it had its original cockade replaced with later East German air force cockades. Hence the two very faint holes at the top for the propeller/wings.
    I replaced the cockade with what i think was a correct one. However i still havenít been able to determine what branch. Mainly considering the piping. I looked through stonemints thread for an idea and search Mdi visors and couldnít come up with anything

    Thanks for any suggestions and answers you guys can come up with

    The photo is a little dark John, what colour is the piping?
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The piping colour is almost the exact same as the visor itself. Weird

    OK i'm not 100% sure here but i think your cap should have the airforce type insignia it came with, i think it's a Hubschraubereinheit visor, that is a Transportpolizei helicopter unit.

    An oddity. But I will go hunt down the old insignia.

    Some more MDI caps currently on eBay De. All three have different coloured piping.

    Forget the Hubschraubereinheit idea John, after looking into it more their visor caps had slightly paler blue piping.
