German Bundeswehr service hat
« on: March 16, 2015, 09:53:14 AM »
My neighbor was doing some spring cleaning and found a couple old hats, asked me if I wanted them before he threw them away.
Here's his old Pioneertruppe Schirmmütze, and/or Engineer Corps service hat, (black piping) late 60's-early 70's, notice the high crown.
We called them "bus driver" hats in the US army, I personally did not like wearing them.

Hi JS, I'll have to check into that, if they're obsolete or not. The Polizei (police), the Feuerwehr (fire department) and others were wearing that style for years. "Ve haf vays of makink you talk".  8)

Pat...old East German visors and caps etc are quite common...and cheap...at UK collectors' fairs. Bundeswehr flecktarn stuff likewise.
