N049676 TeNo OVERSEAS CAP. (Feldmütze)

BACKGROUND: TeNo, "Technischen Nothilfe" (Technical Emergency-Aid), was originally established in 1919, its members comprised of skilled civilian personnel who would voluntarily avail themselves to maintain and repair essential services in the event of a natural disaster or emergency. TeNo was administered by the Minister of the Interior, until mid-1939, when it became an official state organization under control of the Police, which, in turn, was controlled by the SS. With this change in status a small nucleus of salaried officials were employed to run the organization. As the war dragged on, TeNo became more of a para-military organization, with its direction becoming increasingly controlled by the Waffen-SS.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Dark navy blue wool/rayon blend cap, with fold down scalloped sides. Sides have stitched in hooks to slip through metal grommets on cap body sides. Machine woven TeNo insignia in silver/aluminum thread, on an inverted triangular woven rayon backing. Insignia machine stitched to cap. Machine woven cockade with silver/aluminum thread, on a rayon diamond, also machine stitched to cap. Black cotton, interior has ink stamp size "57". Nice clean example.    (Ex Philippe Gillain Collection)
