Hello,

It is a West German Beret. You should have a moderator put this in the proper forum Page.

Standard issue BW beret from 1959 through some time in the 1960s. I'm not exactly sure. There are two types. The earlier type has a leather sweatband, as yours does, the latter type have a cloth sweatband.

For armoured vehicle crews in 1960s. There was both soft beret like this and a crash beret issued. I am not sure why both, maybe someone else know.

Regards
Klaus
