    Those are some of the best pictures of caps ive seen especially in one place and period worn, i agree about the rakish way the hats are arranged , almost to the point of complete disfigurement in some and its strange that they were allowed to get away with it, as Ade said a Sgt/Majors nightmare

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That's the cap of the Flemish Germanic SS. (Allgemeene SS Vlaanderen / Germaansche SS in Vlaanderen)

    Instead of the national eagle, the Germanic SS formations in Flanders had this elongated Swastika, those in the Netherlands had a "Wolf's Hook" and the Danish Schalburg-Korps a winged "mobile" Swastika, while the Death's Head was common to all of them.

    (The man in the photograph SS-Onderstormleider August Schollen, murdered on 4 December 1942 in Brussels.)

    For some more photos and period items related to the Flemish SS, please see:
