WW1 German Tropical Cap - ARTILLERY!

Another recent pick up over Christmas you may be interested in having a look at as i got such good feedback on
the other WW1 Tropical items wink

WW1 German Artillery Officers Tropical Cap with black band and red piping, this one is made from tan coloured gabardine.
Not in bad condition for age, just has some minor mothing to the top with some wear to the bottom and the metal
stiffener ring at the top has broken. But i got it for a reasonable price through a friend I know in New Zealand who was able
to get it from one of his dealers at a reduced price.
Just nice also to be able to get hold of two different branches of service showing the different colours plus one in
crusher style and the other still with stiffeners showing the typical WW1 German Cap shape for Officers.

The New Zealand Mounted rifles served in Palestine that formed the ANZAC Mounted Division so i would say this was a bring back by
a New Zealand soldier as a souvenir.

Like my Infantry Officers version it has no date or makers stamp.

Anyway I'll let the pictures do the talking.

It's all good and well to sing along when the world goes along with a song, but the man
worth while is the one who can smile when everything goes dead wrong.

Sorry guys that I didn't reply earlier hmm

Thanks, it's a pity about that top metal ring being broken but then it's Imperial German Tropical so you have to take what you can get smile

Cheers

Nice cap Stu. Hard to believe that this item is 100 years old yet in such a good condition.
