Default Post Your Favorite Wartime Visor Hat Photo!

You guys know me--I am always looking for new threads to start--here's my latest idea--post any wartime photos that depict a visor cap demonstrating what Gene calls s3 (s Cubed): STYLE, SHAPE, & SYMMETRY.

Here is one of my faves, Reichsleiter Baldur Von Schirachs visor:

This is a low-quality photo, but this is the Danish volunteer Per Sorensen.
There was a picture of him in what I believe was John Keegan's book, "Waffen SS--the Asphalt Soldiers" which came out in the 70's--his hat was the one that started me on the road to collecting high-peaked visors
(and his has to be one of the highest-peaked WSS visors I've ever seen--talk about "s3"!

Boring to most of you, but I love these final pattern Reichsbahn Visors (and they're a b**ch to find in mint condition!):
