Württemberg Landjägerkorps
Schirmmütze
 
 
Württemberg Landjägerkorps issued Schirmmütze. The Landjägerkorps were military police similar to the Preußen Gendarmerie. The Schirmmütze is a very dark dunkelgrünem (dark green) issue-quality doe-skin wool with kornblumenblaues (corn flower blue) band and red piping. Note that the only Kokarden worn on the cap is the issue pattern Württemberg Kokarde. No Reich's Kokarde was worn by this unit as it was specific to Württemberg.
 
The interior of the Schirmmütze is completely lined in a heavy grey linen. The interior is stamped "LK" for Landjägerkorps
