Hello

I hope this is the right section

 

What are your thoughts on this hat?

I can not find much on this type of headgear.

It came with some military stuff and not sure if its military or civilian?

Thank You

Tony

. I would agree. All the Navy issue ones Ive ever seen were OD Green, like the rain coats.

Would merchant marines have worn this? Possibly?

. Everyone who went out on a boat, or who hung around the shore would have worn them. This is v pretty much civilian. Looks civilian due to the construction and lack of any real stamps or markings. USMS? Maybe, but I think they got most of their foul weather gear from the USN.
