Heer tropical cap of the German Afrika Korps, as well as the troops of the southern front (Italy, Greece). May be used for Kriegsmarine or Luftwaffe depending on insignia. Heer caps were usually darker. Made of natural breathable cotton fabric. The color of the cap is sand (tobacco shade). Caps quickly faded and turned almost white. Soldiers could purposely wash their caps out with bleach to look like veterans.
Two pairs of eyelets (metal-edged holes) on the sides, red lining and the stamp with the year of production (1942) on the lining. Visor has an insert of thick fabric, so you can bend it and put into a pocket.
