    Looks like a Luftwaffe garrison cap, but I am no expert

    Hi Frenchy, it is Russian! A Red Navy officers pilotka, I think?

    Size 57, made in Moscow in 1941.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Frenchy, that was a real bargain!

    It should have a wreath in gold with an Anchor plus the Red Star as a cap badge. Sorry I don't have a pic to show.

    I am sure Dimas will have one to show you. I am moving the thread to the Soviet section now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Agreed, a very nice navy pilotka hat, but as I will be at home will place the cockade for it.
