    Not trying to hijack your pinned thread by any means, John. I'd appreciate if you replied to the discussion thread on this cap:

      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.

            Nice pics John thanks

            Yeah I know a lot of swip swaping went on with early or even late tropical gear. The F.J. marked m-42 I have still has the original Heer eagle and was to be replaced with a luft one but never got the chance. Send me a Email Ill send ya some pics of this REALLY nice marked F.J. 2nd Reg. div cap I have. Rick

                  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...

                              Outstanding and incredible Gustav, that both are hand marked inside is very special! Many thanks for sharing them on this thread, both elevate the quality of information here!

                                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.
