Tropical Side Cap

Hello Guys
I'm new to this very interesting forum.  My WWII interests are many!  I would like to ask the experts on here if this cap looks 'correct'.  I think it's OK.
Many thanks

Very nice unissued Hans Brandt 842 Aug '42 with factory applied insignia, correct without the soutache.

Right out of the beehive cache....

That's excellent, Tim, much appreciated! I've found some really interesting information about the beehive cache on this site.  Many thanks.

Nice cap. From the Beehive as Tim said.

Re: Tropical Side Cap

As stated - great to see this one hasn't been attacked with post war soutache.
