C072074 SPANISH FRANCOIST BICORN HAT.

BACKGROUND: With the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in July 1936 the Germans supported the fascist Nationalist Generalissimo Francisco Franco against the communist allied Republican party. The German support consisted of assorted field equipment and weapons, ground personnel and a group of Luftwaffe volunteers designated as the Condor Legion. The participation in this conflict enabled the Germans to test their fledgling Luftwaffe and by rotating personnel gave them a core of troops with actual combat experience.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A black felt bicorn hat with a lace braid extending the outer perimeter of each side. To the front left is a stamped brass/gilt cap badge representing the Spanish army. The cap is lined in a blue cotton. The hat does not appear to have been issued or worn. No markings present.
