N050276 DAF FEMALE BERET. (Baskenmütze)

BACKGROUND: The Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Labor Front), originally founded in 1933, became an official NSDAP organization in October 1934. Its stated purpose was to educate the workers in industry and commerce for smooth and efficient operation of all labor in the Third Reich. The structure of the DAF was basically the same as the NSDAP with different political levels of organization. Due to the diversification in labor the DAF was divided into sub-sections for specific trades and/or professions and it also controlled the Kdf, Kraft durch Freude, (Strength through Joy), organization which provided recreation for workers. However the DAF’s most important goal was to enforce the political stability of the large mass of the work force.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Nice quality, navy blue wool construction, female DAF beret with a single piece, circular crown, a two piece body with vertical machine stitched seams to each side and a single piece, narrow, lower, horizontal forehead band.
