Reichswehr Caps 1919 -1934

Article about: Donnerwetter. Mine was earlier than than, and I surely did not get such a sum for it...

    HI Tony,
    This is the only photo I have in my books. This via Uniforms & Traditions of the German Army by John Angolia. Wehrmacht-era but the lack of cap eagles suggest very early.

    Hi

    That's an early shot I'd say circa 1936 as the tunics have the bottom pockets exposed. The mountain cap was the same as the ww1 version in field grey material of course and the pictures in the RW book I cite have some nice pictures (but only two) of the cap in wear during the 1920's.

    A photo album of RW mountain troops recently went on e bay but it was expensive......that would have given you some cracking pics. sadly I did not win it otherwise I would post them here.

    If I find any more I will let you know. I concentrate on Heer/infantry but these things too are becoming rarer.

    cheers

    Hi

    Here is the latest addition to my RW collection. It has appeared earlier in the thread but has been restored by me.

    1934 field cap with embroidered wreath and field grey cloth cap band. Belonged to an officer in IR6.

    Good evening Guys,

    Some more period pictures from some albums of mine to show the various caps being worn in their natural habitat..........

    First up a couple of portrait shots (courtesy of MMarcus) showing the schirmmütze in wear. Both of these are private purchase examples and the NCO has opted for the bullion wreath............what a show off ! circa 1934/35.

    Then we have some examples of the field cap in wear alongside the service cap in the field. A mixture of the other ranks wearing the Imperial style ww1 1917 pattern field cap, nco's have the RW 1919 pattern peaked cloth cap and the officers maintain their decorum with the service cap.

    Final section from an album that shows the 12 MG Komp in winter warfare training in Feb/March 1929. I am still working on which Regt./unit they are. These are interesting pics because they not only show the field cap in wear but also the transportation of the machine gun "auf skier".

    Hi

    Latest addition to my RW collection. A universal field cap that was introduced in 1917 for the imperial army but continued to be worn right upto the mid 1930's by training elements of the RW.

    This one has been issued after the end of the war as its bears no Imperial acceptance stamps but has the RW stamps. The wheel motif has been inked over and I have a suspicion that this may be a theatrical costumiers mark as I have a 1919 field cap with the same stamps. The inner lining material is t is more of a tunic lining that the white calco lining used in Imperial times.

    I am happy with it but it caused some debate among others. as ever comment welcome and feedback appreciated.

    Kind regards

    Tony

    Hi

    Re-inventing the wheel a bit here as the caps below have already been published on the thread in detail but the pictures are more about how they look in a display............................they are in date order.

    Top: the transistional Imperial cap with 1919 insignia and then the 1920 Service cap of the new uniform....next to an original publication showing the uniform regulations for the Reichswehr.

    below: 1922 dated cap for pioneers and a 1922/24 dated cap for IR 17 alonside shoulderboards for that regt. The plaque is for IR18 MG company alongside a photo of the boys dated 1923.
