Re: Three visor caps?

hello, you have three M69 service caps for officers, with the post-1980 gold chinstrap. The two caps on the left need the same oval insignia than the aviation one on the right, and this later lacks a wings badge on the top of the crown...

Re: Three visor caps?

The visors indicate 80's production (large, plastic visors), but otherwise they are more or less unchanged m69 model.

The first 2 on the left are for Infantry and for technical branches (if the second has velvet band - for tank troops specificaly). They need either officer everyday badges (exactly the same as the third cap has) or EM and NCO badges, but in this case, they will also need the chinstraps replaced by the ones made of artificial leather. In the first case, they will be officer everyday caps, in the second case - EM and NCO parade caps. The badges they have now are for officers parade caps and are wrong for these caps in every configuration.
The thid cap requires Air Force ooficers everyday badge and crown wings for officers (everyday) or EM&NCO badge and wings on the crown and chinstrap replacement for EM/NCO (parade). It's current badge was not used by the airforce at that period.
