Tropical Panzer officer M38

I came across this picture today and must say its the first wartime period one I've seen of a DAK officer( also a KC winner) wearing the tropical officer M38 side cap

Also of interest is the officer on the left and the sun fading to his jacket as exposed by having the collar up and wears a general assault badge rather than the panzer badge

If any one has other war time photos of the tropical officer side cap being worn, I love to see them, as it would rate as the rarest of all tropical caps IMO

Re: Tropical Panzer officer M38

Very nice photo Mark.
What i also like in this photo is the bone white faded M40 with the blanket coat. Always liked this combo.

The officer wearing the M38 is also wearing an Italian tunic, no?
