    I've not seen an eagle like this before but I really like it. I hope the cap and eagle are real. The cap isn't mine but from a site displaying war relics and I discovered a Polish page. Now I cant find the site...

    It has Latest Fashion imprinted on it, and I wouldnt think that tailors in Poland would write it in English but I may be wrong. Still a wonderful example

    3mk, English text on pre-war Polish cap sweatbands bands was not unusual. Here is an example from a wz.27 cap.

    Hi ccj,

    First off, that is a very nice wz.36 tunic! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    So, we need a thread discussing all the differences between pre and post war caps. I need a really good book on Polish prewar uniforms.

    We officer field caps the same as enlisted field caps?
