Historical Information about the m40 Tropical Cap (Afrikamütze)

The Heer tropical field cap (Tropen-Fliegermütze) was widely issued to personnel serving in North Africa, Mediterranean or the southern Front. Originally, caps were issued with a soutache, featuring the waffenfarbe of the branch of service, but an order to remove this was issued on the 10th July 1942. Subsequently, tropical caps manufactured after this date were issued without soutache.

The Luftwaffe units in Africa, such as members of the Brigade Ramcke were issued army m40 Tropical Field caps. The Heer insignia was replaced by the insignia on the Luftwaffe Side Cap.

This model was designed in 1940, as part of the German Tropical Uniform for the DAK. That is why we refer to this cap as m40 model, not m41.
