WW2 German Luftwaffe blue M43 field cap with a single button for an enlisted mans.
In 1943 the Luftwaffe side cap was replaced by the Einheitsfliegermutze (general issue flyers cap) and was general issue to all Luftwaffe personal including the paratroopers. This is the mans version (the officers version has silver aluminium lace around the top).
The M43 field cap proved a very popular design as it was a great improvement over the side cap. The M43 cap featured a peak which gave protection from the sun or the rain and the sides could be folded down and fastened under the chin to keep warm.
This high quality reproduction wool Luftwaffe M43 field cap is made in Germany to the original design and includes the insignia.
The M43 cap was made in two styles, the difference being how many buttons fastened up at the front, this kept the fold down flaps in place when they where not required. This model of M43 cap has a single button on the front, which is sometimes said to be the early model of M43 cap.
Two piece insignia which is the Luftwaffe eagle and the separate cockade has been professionally and correctly sewn on.
Price is for one Luftwaffe M43 field cap with quality insignia sewn on so it is ready to wear.
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.
Amazingly the 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 have a tailor in the UK to expertly sewn the insignia on.
So with this cap you are getting a high quality hat and high quality badges.
