I like the original silver cords as well F-B. Too bad they went and photo shopped it.
I also think that the silver wire Effekten were also worn in the Reichswehr of the time, as well.....see Kranz und Kokarde on said cap that was once mine.....but it has an alu Gehirmbremse.
Oh well. The chin cords on the actual cap still appear as they do in Whammond's image..... Said pile of caps image did I make a couple of months ago for no good purpose. I guess they will rape that image, too.....pi pa po.
Send an email asking for royalties.........!

A few years ago now Lez and I had a website about the British ATS. ( Now sadly defunct as AOL don't host sites anymore) A company in India who makes replica clothing stole images of all Lez's ATS caps and showed them on their site implying they were their fakes. We did not take kindly to this. I contacted him as to where the images had come from and I got the excuse a "customer" had sent them to him and he had used them from there. I politely requested removal from the website. Now, had he asked if he could have used them saying these were originals which he could copy things might have turned out different. He came back with a reply which to me showed he was an educated man using the word "fiefdom", not something the average person would say, saying that the Internet was not mine. I am a pretty easy going guy as I think most of you know. But this really got my back up. I then told him he had 24 hours to remove the photos or I would start legal proceeding against him. This was not an idle threat. I found his service provider and made telephone calls to both India and the USA to report these copyrite infringements. I also advised him having looked further around his website that I would be informing the authors (know to me personally) of several books on Allied uniforms who's pics he had scanned and stolen about his activities. He came back with an excuse about it being the Monsoon season and it would take time. I then said fine, play it like that then and told him what I had done. Suddenly the pics dissappeared! He said I was a very hard hearted man!

A great result Ade and a sad state of affairs about F-B's cap pictures. On a more positive note, someone pm'd recently and asked if they could use some of my pictures from Ijmuiden on their website and they are up and credited to me. A good thing, I assume?

Whatever its just an opinion.
