K027176 OFFICER'S VISOR CAP WREATH & COCKADE. (Schirmmütze Eichenlaubkranz und Korkade)

BACKGROUND: Visor caps were a standard issue item for all personnel during the Third Reich period and regulations dictated the form of dress they were to be worn with based on the individuals rank. Officer and senior NCO ranks could purchase their caps from the army clothing depots but were also permitted to wear privately purchased visor caps of higher quality. Originally the insignia worn on the visor cap consisted the Weimar Reichsheer pattern oak-leaf wreath and cockade until a new more detailed pattern wreath and cockade were introduced in March 1935.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 1935 pattern, hand embroidered oak-leave wreath in bright golden yellow celleon threads with gilt bullion accent threads on a cut-out, padded navy blue wool base. The wreath encompasses a three piece national tri-color cockade with an inserted red felt centerpiece. The reverse of the base has a protective fabric backing.   (Ex Philippe Gillain Collection)
