K013378 BLUE TOP FOR SAILOR'S "DONALD DUCK" CAP. (Mannschaftsmütze)

BACKGROUND: German Naval uniforms and headgear were based on traditional designs that date back to the creation of the Prussian Navy in 1848, and although uniforms and headgear did evolve during the interim years many items used during the Third Reich would still have been quite recognizable to the Imperial sailor. One of the traditional headgear items utilized during the Third Reich was the "Donald Duck" sailor’s cap intended for wear by all Junior NCO’s and enlisted personnel. The design of the cap underwent numerous minor modifications during the intervening years, including a cap with removable, interchangeable white and blue covers in April 1926. In December 1931 a final pattern was introduced that remained in use until the end of WWII with the only alterations being to the insignia and cap tallies worn.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Removable "Blue Top" for sailors cap. Blue wool construction. Comes with an original cockade. Original owners name tag and service number are sewn to the inside top of the cover. Nice.
