Examples of Officer Caps
Two examples of officer caps for the reference files and to demonstrate the changing insignia in the 1930's.
The top one is as of 1928-1932 with the introduction of the silver chin cord and the usual Reichsadler insignia with metal wreath on the cap band. State cockade on the crown.
Pioneer cap as of 1933-1935 when the reichsadler was replaced by the cockade bearing the national colours. The state cockade remained on the crown.

Fantastic , high quality display
Wonderful material from one of the real stalwarts here.
And the Reichswehr is a fine area of inquiry and collection.
Hi Tony, as usual happy to see any of your collection of visors.
cheers SK. I see you too reside in the garden of England !
Hi Tony, yes I like living in Kent Garden of England. Just a quick boat/car/plane trip to Europe to see the war sites.
Have you been to see the poppy display at Tower of London as to my post today, A wonderful feeling being there?
Not ben yet, it's on the radar. On visiting the sites in Europe ....Ironically I can be in France quicker and cheaper than London from where I am !
Keep posting !
