Gents,

It has been rather quiet here lately so I thought I would post a well worn example of the Prussian blue Bahnschutz Polizei peaked cap that was worn with the regulation blue in-country BZP uniform. This is a grey piped Railway Police peaked cap with black velvet band and grey piping that I picked up over the weekend.

These caps are quite scarce in the enlisted style for some reason. One will find the blue-green BZP uniform caps but the dark blue ones are seldom seen. Most of the blue-green out-of-country worn peaked caps that I have seen were made by Clemens Wagner while this dark blue example was made by August Muller.

Thank you for the kudos Horst. I see the Officer versions of this blue cap for sale from time to time but for whatever reason the NCO versions are seldom seen. I was quite pleased to find this one.
