Product Details

East German Paratrooper Parade Beret

The DDR Paratrooper Parade Beret would have been worn as service or ceremonial dress by East German Paratroopers. Initially, they would have worn grey berets (baskenmutze), but this later changed to orange to represent the coloured caps worn during the peasant uprising in Germany during the 15th century.

These reproduction DDR Paratrooper parade berets are made with wool and feature a soft black leather sweatband and ribbon tie at the back. There are two vent holes on either side of the beret. The caps are all size 3, measuring between 57cm - 60cm by adjusting the tie at the back.

Each beret features paratrooper insignia - a parachute with gull - embroidered with silver thread, and a cockade featuring the DDR national emblem of a hammer and compass, in gold and red. Some caps also feature a silver embroidered wreath around the cockade. Please note that not all berets feature the wreath. The caps with the wreath would be worn by officers, and without the wreath would be worn by enlisted men. Please select which you'd prefer, using the dropdown.
