BACKGROUND: German Naval uniforms and headgear were based on traditional designs that date back to the creation of the Prussian Navy in 1848. The Kaiserliche Marine Mannschaftsmütze went through only very small changes and remained virtually unaltered right up until the end of the Third Reich period.
