Kapit?nleutnant Helmut Vogler's cap.

He was IWO U567 (Kdt Engelbert Endrass) and U-212 Kommandant.

Lost the 21 july 1944 in the English Channel, Sud of Brigthon.

I wonder why Vogler wasn't wearing his hat when his boat went down.

Thanks for the reply Gordon. I guess my dream of finding Gunther Prien's "backup" cap is alive and well. I'd like to respond to Darrell's quiery about removable tops. While Gordon is right about switching blue for white tops, Darrell also had it right that the white tops were removed for washing...hense the metal, removable, eagle. Sometimes a tag with the owners name was sewn on the inside of the top to match it to the body after cleaning. I have also seen white tops with the sewn eagle worn by U-Boat commanders.

About 10 years ago Malcom Fisher (Regimentals) sold a blue cap with the medals (including the u-boat badge with diamonds) and some other things from Gunther Prien to a South African collector, so at least one of them is alive and well.

Hiya,

Here is my one and only Bordm?tze, you can see the wear and 2 pin holes where the original cap emblem was placed. I now have the comet emblem from U-969 in its place.

cheers smiler.

This is the emblem for U-391. She made one patrol, didn't score any successes and was sunk with all hands on her way home in the Bay of Biscay in 1943.

Here is the RARE bird... a Kriegsmarine enlisted M1943 field cap. This is the one pictured in the 3-volume set of books on the Kriegsmarine. Apparently it came out of Bob Alexander's collection at some point.

Here is another view of the insignia on the front of the cap. You can also see the anchor-marked buttons.

That is a rare cap! I have never even seen an authentic one in a collection before!
