Description

Original WW2 German Air Force Officer's Flier's Cap (Luftwaffe Fliegermütze für Offizieren).

These caps were intended for wear by flying personnel, when they were not wearing their flying helmets (waiting in flying gear for the call to action, or after return from a mission until de-briefed). The officer's version is made of a finer grade of material, and has the twisted silver bullion cord around the turned up flap.

This example is made of the usual fine grade blue grey wool. Its internal sweatband has come loose in a few places but is an easy fix. In total, only a two inch section is loose.

The insignia on the front is a heavy silver bullion eagle, and it is the first pattern, with the 'dropped tail'. This pattern was superceded some time in 1936 or 1937, by an eagle form that continued in use to the end of the war, with a tail that was slightly flared at the end. The cockade is embroidered cotton.

It is Maker Marked on the sweatband, but the marking is not completely legible. It appears to say - Razz's

It is around size 55cm.
