The German General Staff was a full-time body at the head of the German Army, responsible for the continuous study of all aspects of war, and for drawing up and reviewing plans for mobilisation or campaigns. Claus von Stauffenberg was also part of the General Staff during the plot to assassinate Hitler.
This cap reflects one worn by General Staff up to the rank below General. It is in brand new condition as if just purchased from the cap maker!
It is a super cap, made of top quality gaberdine material and in the same method and materials as the originals. It is difficult to tell does not date from WW2. It has carmine red piping, and silver chinstrap, silver buttons, leather liner, vulkanfibre peak and celluloid head liner are some of the outstanding features.
The eagle is our museum quality one with outstanding detail and the wreath & cockade are embroidered aluminium.
These are generally made to order so there may be a few weeks delay between ordering and receipt. Please email us if you want one of these caps made up.
