The 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar was raised in France in 1943 and consisted mainly of Bosnian muslim Waffen-SS Officers and NCO’s. As an anti-partisan division, it moved east in the spring of 1943 to fight against Tito’s mainly Serb Christian partisans in Yugoslavia (Northern Bosnia). The 13. Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS “Handschar” was granted an unusual concession by Heinrich Himmler to adopt the traditional fez in the form of the SS M43 fez and to continue with all religious practices. All ranks wore the fez cap; grey for field use, and burgundy for dress and ceremonial occasions.

The wings on the eagle look very straight compared to the original you have in the photograph. I can see the age with the moth holes, but before making an offer can you let me know how you got this item. Look forward to your reply
