Re: Unit framed picture

I always go 2 to 3 times up and down a shop, a flea market or any other exposition of items for sale.
Also do change of direction, when starting a new visit; you always missed something!

Re: Need some help in how to describe this cap

Thank you all! not sure why you call it "summer" and "M17" but that's probably due to my lack of knowledge Nothing wrong with your knowledge!! Just my interpretation of what I read during my research. I am probably totally wrong, and the reason of my question;"how to describe this cap at his best"...

Re: Need some help in how to describe this cap

So would it be correct to state that it is a M17 summer Schirmmütze to a infantry Prussian officer !?
The bottom edging is not quiet white, but seems like a discoloration, due to age. I think it was originally the same color as the top.

Recovery, ain't that easy... had RR since I was a child.
And at least 3 (had the same time)for more then 20 years.
The thing is I am getting to old to manage those big dogs.
Lift them and carry them from stairs, if needed, isn't that simple anymore...
