Title Kriegsmarine ORs cap insignia
Nationality German
Period 1936-45
Price £65.00

There are good pre-war photos showing this in use, viz the Graf Spee's world cruise, for instance. U-boat crews would always wear these at formal events like the Indienstellung (commissioning) of their boat, reverting to the schiffchen (fore and aft cap) for regular service use.

This was worn on both the winter (navy blue) and summer (white top) navy cap, copied of course from our own Royal Navy! There was a two-inch pin fitted at the back for insertion in the cap; sadly this has been lost. Nevertheless, a hard to find badge.

testimonials

My husband LOVED his North Africa escape map - I had it professionally framed - it's beautiful.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
