    Deutsche Reichspost or Deutsche Bahn cap?

    When I bought this photo from this HJ member, I was thinking he was wearing a kriegsmarine cap, but then when I had it scanned I noticed it couldn't be a kriegsmarine cap and looked more like a Reichsbahn or Reichpost... What are your opinions on this one?

    I would bet it is a Reichsbahn cap with a metal cockade .

    DAF was different cap, even the eagle looks to different side

    Not DAF ... It is Reichsbahn or Postal . Look at the direction of the eagles head .

    DAF no chance, as the eagle would have the wrong form.
    Postal: neither as hardly ever a field-cap was worn by postal
    employees. I have many postal photographs. None shows the
    field-cap in wear.
    Reichsbahn is a good possiblity, but I would rather prefer to
    say Strassenbahn, as with regularity HJ-members served with
    tramways.

    Hello Albrecht,

    I only can show close-ups, as these photos are "under embargo" for a next publication
    (photo-credits mr.Ott).
    First two is Klein- und Privatbahn, second is Reichsbahn and the last three is Strassenbahn.
    Instead of the cloth eagle, the metal version was often used.
