Good morning Filip,

thanks for your reply, I was asking about the very small, as you called them "fezzes" used in combat.

Please see the attached photo:

Hi - it's an Albanerfez (I/28) with a pleat ironed into the top.

Thanks George,

so, a "pleat" ironed in the top of the fez is similar to a "Bügelfalte" in the german language...

Like the modern "french disease", talking about the mostly small berets in the military in later years?

P.S. I remember the term "Französische Krankheit" (French disease...) for wearing very small berets,
as small, as possible.

Hello again, Hans,

The variation you posted in your photo is the so-called Albanerfez, a Fez variation for Albanians. It was worn only in the Albanian battalion of the 13th SS Division.

Hope this helped
Cheers,
Filip

Hello!

I will supplement your assertion since there are also several examples of the use of such fez by Albanian soldiers from the 21-SS Division.

Best regards
Dmitrii
