BACKGROUND: The Kriegsmarine originally used white uniforms and headgear as their tropical dress and had two separate brown tropical uniforms, with one developed before the war and one during the war. The white overseas cap followed the same pattern as the navy blue overseas cap and it is believed it was introduced in mid-1939, for wear by Junior NCO’s and EM’s on a restricted basis.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Brushed white cotton and rayon blend construction cap features fold down side and back panels with gently sloping, downward scallops to the front and forward sides. Machine embroidered national eagle and cockade with original stitching to the cap. The interior of the cap is fully lined in white cotton. Maker marked "B. Rave & Co.". Date for 1942. Size marked 57. Small unknown U-boat insignia pinned to the side of the cap.
