Kriegsmarine Leutnant White Topped U Boat Visor Cap By EREL.
This visor cap has a single row of braid for the rank of a Leutnant Zur which is the rank of a U-boat commander.
This is no ordinary kriegsmarine visor cap as it has been made by EREL in Germany, EREL was one of the original hat manufactures in WW2 for the German navy and the company is still making caps in Germany today. So the cap is made in the correct style which means the white cover is removable and underneath is a lightweight fabric covering the cap.
The white top kriegsmaine visor cap was issued for summer wear by all kriegsmarine personnel except U-Boat crews who were allowed to wear the white caps all year round so they could be easily identified by all crew members when running in red light (night combat missions).
The EREL Summer Kriegsmarine Leutnant visor cap features:
Not all EREL caps are the same, as EREL do not supply the badges on the caps, so it is down to the retailer to add the badges some attach cheap poorly made badges others like ourselves only use high quality reproductions. We believe the best cap deserves the best badges so you may find a cheaper EREL made cap but check the quality of the badges first.
Made by EREL in Germany.
The Robert Lubstein company is better know by its brand EREL. In WW2 the EREL factory was contracted to make hats for the German military and you can still find original war time hats with the EREL mark inside them today. In fact many reference books show original war time hats made by EREL and in these books you can clearly see the EREL brand marks inside them.
Amazinglythe EREL company is still making hats in Germany today! so what is better than having a reproduction German hat made by one of the original hat makers in WW2. These EREL caps are made with high quality fabrics just like the war time hats you cant really have any better.
As these hats are made in Germany, under current German laws they are not allowed to sell them with insignia on them. So we have high quality insignia made and we then fix the insignia onto the cap in UK.
So with this cap you are getting a high quality hat and high quality badges.
