  1. Hi Gi! I'm from Bonn, which is about 2 1/2 hours away from Baumholder. Practically next door by American standards
  2. Hi everyone! This cap was advertized as an unlabeled M-43 pile cap, and as it was a large size (7 3/8ish), in good condition, and reasonably priced I bought it. There are no labels or tags whatsoever. Is this a US Army M-43 pile cap at all, or maybe a similar cap as used by some other country's army? The way the laces are attached to the flaps looks different than on other (labeled) M-43 pile caps I've seen, and the bill is a funny shape and not as broad as usual. Can anyone tell if this is a US Army M-43 pile cap at all, or if it is Canadian, Dutch or from some other NATO country?
  3. Hi everybody, time to de-lurk! My main interest is WW2 and Korean War era flight clothing. My collecting habits are totally unfocussed, though, and often I buy stuff simply because it catches my fancy. I have loved the smell of military surplus stores from my childhood. I like this forum for the friendly atmosphere and the knowledge that's being shared. Thanks for having me :-) Best regards, Peter
