Peaked Cap of a Christian Army Chaplain of Prussia during World War I

In the past I published some articles about head coverings worn by religious dignitaries during their service in the army:

Here a peaked cap, worn by Christian army chaplain (Feldgeistlicher) of Prussia
during World War I (1914 - 1918).

  1. Thanks for sharing this ancient World War 1 military cap. This cap explains the thousands words in background. This is certainly a very important feature of any army men uniform. It is symbol of glory and success.
