Thanks for the comments. I actually said jokingly to Caron that it is like we were performing surgery as I was holding the “patient “ and shining a flashlight on the stitch line, while she was using tweezers to pull the thread through the holes in the shell. We were both praying that the thread did not break or pull through that thin strip of visor material. I also teased her by saying I bet you never in your life thought that one day you would be pulling waxed thread from the 1950’s through a hundred year old hat! :)

Some pictures of the completed Officer Tschapka. I could not solve the "wrinkle" problem but the piece still looks pretty good now that everything has been cleaned, rebuilt and restitched.

The silk liner was stitched back in as well as the metal cypher "D". It still would be very nice if some member could provide a name which matches this cypher and corresponds to one of the 3 Regts which wore this wappen.
