EM/NCO’S SUMMER UNIFORM KRIEGSMARINE OVERSEAS CAP
A scarce to find Kriegsmarine EM/NCO’s summer uniform overseas cap (Kriegsmarine Sommer Schiffchen), constructed of white cotton twill.
It is fully surrounded by fold-down side walls with gentle scalloping at the front. Stitched onto the peak of the cap is an insignia consisting of a white cotton base bearing a machine-embroidered light blue Wehrmacht eagle clutching a wreathed mobile swastika. The eagle insignia is hand sewn. Underneath the eagle, the cap features a machine-embroidered tri-colour cockade on a white cotton backer. Cockade is machine sewn.
A light white cotton twill liner fully encompasses the interior of the cap. A size stamp, made in black ink, of "56" is also partially visible.
Soiling/yellowing of its age is visible to the exterior.
The cap is in an extremely fine condition.
A scarce white Kriegsmarine side cap.
