H022172 JAGER EM/NCO'S OVERSEAS CAP. (Feldmütze M34)

BACKGROUND: The M34 Overseas cap for wear by EM/NCO personnel was initially introduced on March 24TH 1934, with non-functional front buttons, and a different insignia configuration. Regulations of October 1935, did away with the buttons and altered the insignia utilized on the cap. The M34 cap was worn by EM/NCO’s until the introduction of the newly designed M42 overseas cap on July 21ST 1942.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Modified, October 1935 pattern, field-grey wool/rayon blend construction cap with fold down side and back panels with gently sloping, downward scallops to the front and forward sides. The fold down panels are handstitched in the upright position at the front center of the cap as is typical. The cap has metal alloy, ventilation grommet to either side, just below the crown edge. The front center of the cap has a machine woven national eagle in pale mouse grey threads on a cut-out, woven field-grey rayon base. The front center of the fold down panels has a machine woven national tri-color cockade, on a woven cotton, diamond shaped base. Both the eagle and the cockade are neatly handstitched to the cap and show moderate color fading. The cap has an inverted "V" , green soutache flanking the cockade. The soutache has been applied in the correct manner, being machine stitched in place and inserted through two small puncture holes near the bottom edge of the cap. The interior of the cap is fully lined in ribbed, grey cotton twill. Faint maker mark with 1939 date. Looks to be size marked 55. Some mothing & repairs. Nice heavily worn early example.
