This cap has been made to replicate one worn by Josef Lainer. Lainer was a Hauptscharführer (Master Sergeant) in the Waffen-SS during World War II who was awarded the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross, to recognize extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership by Nazi Germany during World War II. He was also awarded the very rare Close Combat Clasp in Gold one of only 631 awards and he twice escaped from captivity when being held as a prisoner of war.
