  2. I don`t know if you TENO specialists can help me but a few years ago i bought an interesting lot at a local auction .It was listed as "ww2 german airmans caps" in fact it was an almost mint condition TENO nco`s cap.armband and two strange side caps.According to the auctioneer the lot came from a local old lady whose husband picked it up at the end of the war.The cap has a silver flecked piped crown with a plain black ribbed cap band,silver flecked black cap cords and an erel sonderklasse teno eagle sweat shield. The side caps are also mint,made of the same dark blue material as the nco`s cap but have have hexagonal dark blue backed bevo police eagles below cockades on the front. the badge was sewn on during the caps manufacture and the lining is ribbed siver grey synthetic satin.the only marks are printed size56.i believe the caps are associated but can find no reference to Teno staff wearing police type side caps.I was told that teno were under police control at one time but you would know that better than me.Any ideas? mac i shall try and post some pictures later
