    This Schirmmutze was the standard officer’s peaked service cap of the war years. The piping of the band and crown was coloured according to the branch of service. The Totenkopf tradition badge worn on this example was a privilege of the 17th Infantry Regiment, recalling the old 92nd Brunswick Infantry Regiment of Imperial days, which itself traced its lineage - and the death’s- head badge - to the “Black Brunswickers” of the Napoleonic Wars.

    This high quality cap lining features the “Erel” trademark of a famous Berlin maker printed on the sweat-shield. Note the owner’s name-tag in the slot formed by the sweat-shield stitching.

    Nice Infantry officers visor. I like the traditional badge worn. Those badges were also worn on caps to those in the Cavalry, Panzer and Recon branches.
