LUFTWAFFE

Postby atillathenunns » Sat Feb 16, 2008 6:09 pm

This one is made by the premier hat maker " Robert Lubstein" of Berlin.
It is known as a "Double EREL", which means an EREL cap that has both the normal logo mark on the lining, plus an embossed or printed EREL mark on the sweat band (usually on the left side).
Made of high grade Tricot wool.
Note the vented cocade.

Fliegermutze

Postby atillathenunns » Thu Feb 21, 2008 6:49 pm

Thanks guys.
Heres a nice early Luftwaffe Officer's Fliegermutze.
This garrison cap was issued throughout the Luftwaffe and was worn by all ranks with minor modifications to indicate officer grades.
This cap is made of tricot wool and has ORs insignia.
The aluminium piping indiacates officer issue.

Here are a couple of snaps of my Fliegermutze ... as the pics shot it has a bit of moth tracking but still looks great on display:) unfortunately the insignia has been removed which is a shame... if anyone has the correct enlistedmens insignia sitting around just waiting for a cap .... ?? let me know as Id love to bring this back to its former glory :)
