Sold “Hermann Meyer” CapSKU: Ua227
This is a rare and desirable Luftwaffe tropical cap, famously called the “Hermann Meyer” cap (as a jab at Hermann Goering’s famous statement “…if one bomb falls on Berlin, then you can call me ‘Meyer.'” Goering had worn this style of cap previously, so the name stuck). The cap is made of tan cotton duck, with a long bill and provisions for a neck flap, enabling it to provide protection from the sun for wearers. The overall condition is excellent, with some dryness to the leather chinstrap in front. A great addition to the tropical Luft collection! COA accompanies sale.
