Danish Civil Defense officer’s visor cap (M52)
“Civilforsvaret” in Denmark is kind of like the army reserves in many other countries—you’re called up for a few weeks of active service each year. It was formed after WWII as a successor to the CB. All uniforms are property of the state, which may explain why this cap contains the signatures and initials of seven or eight people who probably shared this cap—even though this cap is for a fairly senior officer. By the way, a CD sergeant is called a “Delingsleder” in Danish. “Deling” means “group” or “platoon” and “leder” means “leader.” Oddly enough, “deling” can also mean “sharing,” which strikes me as rather funny in light of the multiple ownership of the uniforms.
