Dark blue wool cap with characteristic buckle holding the side flaps. Leather edged visor and HJ member's pin applied to the cap's front. This is not a standard HJ cap, which would not have leather trimming on the visor. There are a couple of period photos clearly showing one or two HJ members with the edging to the visor as on this example. It's thought these caps were actually civilian ski/mountain caps that might have been used by HJ members. This style of cap has been produced from the 1930s to the 1950s at least, so it's difficult to determine the actual period of the piece. The cap shows wear and some damage to the sweatband.
