It has two badges: The 'Suckling She Wolf' & the Brunswick tradition badge. The Wolf is the emblem of the U-Boat but there is no information as to why Hornkohl wore the tradition badge. Perhaps his Father or member of his family served in the units allowed to wear it!
The peak, liner and chinstrap etc. all show good wear and both the inside and outside are stained and aged. Notice the gold emblem and Captains peak ranking are dark and tarnished. Notice the wear, dirt and stains particularly on the top of the cap. This cap displays the 'Wolf' device for U-566 Hans Hornkohl.
The top is fully removable and it is marked EREL - Sonder Klasse - OKK - Berlin on both liner and sweat protector. This cap is made in Germany and the EREL mark is copyright today making it even more exclusive. The Eagle is our museum quality item with light to medium corrosion stains.
This is a high quality aged peaked Hat from a U-Boat Captain with an very good war record. His ship destroyed one destroyer and shot down two enemy planes!
