World War II era German Army Officer's Nebel Truppen (Smoke Troops) Overseas Cap
This item is an original World War II era German Army Officer's Nebel Truppen (Smoke Troops) Overseas Cap. Manufactured from green colored wool, this hat appears to be a size 56 or 57 that is still in very good condition for its age, while exhibiting no major mothing, rips, tears or other similar damage.
Dealing specifically with the tactical application of white smoke, poison gas and other chemical agents by means of both artillery, hand thrown and airborne delivery systems, Nebel Truppen (Smoke Troops) materials are some of the rarest of all German Army World War II branch insignia to find. As such, this hat would be a distinctive addition to any collection of original German World War II headgear or uniforms respectively.
