No worries William, this is a discussion forum. My take the cap is similar to OSS, that this was not ever a Luftwaffe M-41. And while it may be period made, the twill is more similar to US fabric than period German IMHO. As often stated, field produced caps are a minefield.

Very nice factory produced cap The fragile sweatband is still there so must be not much worn.

Wonderful LW converted m40 cap, Harry. John, your image of the Ramcke NCO (with flies) prompts me to add my cap to this thread. Seen before, of course, the army eagle is still in place under there...
Regards,

Great examples Gustav, thanks for posting. I find it interesting that the tropical blouse shown in photo (on the left) in your post #45 also appears to be privately made.
