    Default Polish Armia Krajowa (AK or Home Army) caps

    Hi all, I am new to this forum and am pleased to have found a forum with Polish militaria collectors.

    I have three Polish AK caps in my small collection of WWIi militaria.

    The first was discovered about eight years ago now in a cellar in Srodmiescie district of Warsaw. I believe it is an adapted German railway man's hat? Maybe some with more knowledge can confirm this for me? This would certainly fit the location where it was foundójust near Warsaw's central railway station. The Polish eagle badge is crudely stamped from tin. I also believe this cap was used by a member of AK battlegroup 'GURT' which fought around the central station area during the 'Rising 1944.

    The light coloured AK cap is from member of 'Barbara' group and the third stitched with 'Kot' (Cat) I think again is an adapted German cap of some type? It may have been used by a anti-communist resistance group within WiN organisation in the early post war period but I am not sure?

    I collect mainly photographs of Poland WWII, especially of occupied Warsaw and I probably have about 3,000 or so in my collection but am always looking for more
