WH (Heer) Artillery Officer's M38 Overseas Cap


WH (Heer) Artillery Officer's M38 Overseas Cap (Einheitsfeldmütze M38 für Offiziere). The Officer’s M38 overseas field cap (Schiffchen) was originally introduced on 6 December 1938 as a replacement for the old pattern isored field cap that had been introduced in March 1934. The design of the Officer’s M38 overseas cap was based on the M34 overseas cap as worn by EM/NCO’s. Originally the Officer’s M38 overseas caps, were outfitted with an identifying branch of service soutache until regulations of 10 July 1942 abolished the use of the soutache and instructed it to be removed from the caps. This is a privately purchased cap made of high quality wool. There is a small leather sweatband in the interiour of the cap, the cap is not visible size marked. The cap is having silver officers piping attached to the crown and side panels of the cap. On front the cap is having a flat-wire woven cap-eagle and hand-embroidered cocarde, it is complete with an original applied red coloured Artillery soutache. The cap is showing some normal traces of usage and age but is in overall very good condition, see photos. Nice original Officer's overseas cap!
