American WW2 Officers Garrison cap made in the OD 51 fabric with the officers braid.
During WW2 the US Army used two designs of Garrison caps, both style caps can be worn for any period of WW2.
This is the first design (which is similar to the American WW1 garrison cap) which has rounded or tapered corners with a gusset on the top.
This Officers garrison cap with the rounded corners was introduced in 1939 and was called the Overseas Garrison cap which was designed to be worn instead of the service cap (with the peak). Our Officers garrison cap is made from the same fabric as our Officers A class OD 51 tunic so they match perfect with our Officers 4 pocket tunic and the short Officers Ike jacket.
This is high quality hat with an officers braid of gold and black in cotton. The wool fabric is a good weight and in the OD 51 colour, to finish off the quality look the inner headband is leather and has a period looking maker label sewn in the headband which reads "Regulation Army Officers Uniform Tailored by Kay Canvas".
This hat is perfect for an USAAF (air force), Infantry or Airborne Officer impression.
For reference the second design is the one with the square corners which is sometimes called the "PX" model.
Price is for 1 x WW2 US Army Officers garrison in OD 51 and is the 1939 model with the rounded corners.
