US Navy Officers hat

Postby muckaroon1960 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 2:47 pm

Another US hat to add to my collection. This one is a US Naval Officers Hat in Khaki. Issued or made by the Naval uniform Service it has a wicker internal band with a green under visor which I believe is circa WW2. Got this from Stoneleigh Militaria today. :thumbsup:

That's a nice quality cap Paul - does it have a leather visor? In my opinion many US caps are under-rated and the tailoring is equally as high standard of many of the late war German caps - very nice cap indeed :thumbsup:

Hi Dave, yes visor is leather and the hat is a good quality item which is circa WW2 or post war early fifties?
