Mountain Cap

The jaunty mountain cap (bergmütze) was a development of the Austrian mountain troop caps of the first world war. The style was adopted during the interwar period by the German high-mountain rifle troops (Gebirgsjäger), as well as many civilian skiers. This cap also was issued to ski-rifle troops and low-mountain infantry (jäger) troops. It was the forerunner of the popular M43 field cap.
