HELP BULGARIAN NAVY CAPS


Recommended Posts

I cannot provide you with any helpful information but I can offer you some consolation. Once the caps arrive you will probably be overwhelmed by how poorly they are made. I do not know about Bulgarian military headgear from WW2 and before, but virtually all hats made since that war are incredibly shoddy in their construction. They may actually be some of the worst ever made. You will quickly notice that the crowns on them all seem to have been made by factory that also made baby pilllows.

You just need to know that this is not a situation where a dealer or fellow collector has cheated you - the blame goes to whichever Bulgarian QM department is responsible for contracting for and accepting such terrible hats...

Regards

My court of last resort for obscure naval and military information has always been Guido Rosignoli. He was the most prolific author on WW2 and Post-War Uniforms, ribbons and insignia. I have about a half dozen books that he wrote and I've just gone through them: there's nothing on Bulgaria anywhere in them.

In the past. when truly desperate, I've had luck contacting the embassy or consulate of a specific country and asking for help, sometimes enclosing a couple photos of whatever it was that I had that needed to be identified. Virtually every embassy has some sort of military attache on its staff; even if the guy is actually a spy or secret policeman, he may still be able to help you.

Regards
