Description Sizing Information
 


Luftwaffe version of the Field Cap worn by Rommel's Afrika Korps. These were worn by Luftwaffe troops in North Afrika, Italy and the Mediterranean theater.
Especially famous were the crews of the 88mm FLAK guns and the Paratroopers.

Made from the same 100% cotton, olive color stepped line twill cloth as the tunics and trousers, and lined in tan cloth. These caps were pattern from our originals, and unlike other reproductions have the correct "puff" at the peak.

Insignia: Due to worldwide problems with swastikas, plans to have the insignia sewn on during production had to be cancelled. These caps normally had hand-stitched insignia. The insignia itself varied widely- both embroidered tan and field blue ("Continental") eagles and cockades, as well as "Bevo" tan insignia were worn. We do not offer hand sewing service. It's relatively easy, but time consuming.Sizing! These caps are one size large when new. Why? Because they shrink.

How to shrink them to fit?
Simple. Get it wet (no washing machines or dryers!), then let it dry.
