  1. Thanks for the info! I'll be on the lookout for one, then.
  2. Hi all, sorry if this isn't the right place to put this but I don't know where else to put it. Tomorrow I'll be purchasing the final pieces to recreate my grandpa's Korean War MP uniform- a Sam Browne belt, a leather .45 mag pouch, and a first aid pouch to match. I'm interested in packing the first aid pouch with accurate supplies, and sadly the searching I've done online so far has come up dry. Does anyone here know what all this would include? I'm not sure if an MP in Germany's pack would be any different from an infantryman's in South Korea, but any information on the topic would be much appreciated.
  3. I suppose my original TC hypothesis is true, then. The cap is closer in color to the TC piping in the last guide you posted than the Ordnance- the red color is dark on my example. Unfortunately I don't yet have an ordnance cap in my possession for me to truly tell the difference, though I figure I'll get my hands on one someday soon. Your help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
  4. I have an unnamed WW2 garrison cap with what I've always seen as Transportation Corps. piping. However, seeing listings on ebay for both Ordnance and Transportation Corps. piping with almost identical looking piping have got me confused. The cap in question has a deep red and golden piping. Is there any surefire way to determine the difference between the two? Thanks in advance, S.B.
  5. As requested, here are a few pictures of my collection. (forgive the bad quality, I don't have a good picture set up and the lighting in my bedroom isn't great to begin with) Also, I miscounted- I have 15 garrison caps in all. https://photos.app.goo.gl/8R4GFS78EfyFCo2n6 (google drive link, can't link pictures directly) As a side note, a few of the AG-344 caps are for sale.
  6. Hi all, I have a handful of M1950 garrison caps in my collection and the tags inside them range from pristine to poor condition. Because of this, I went into Photoshop and made some new tags as potential replacements. Instead of keeping them to myself, I figured y'all could get some use out of them. I have made both Bonita Originals and Miller Bros. cap tags, since they are very similar in design and the change was easy. There are also both khaki and OD versions from each manufacturer. I have made these to the best of my ability- they are not perfect but I made them as best as I could, and matched the fonts as best as I could as well. These tags are templates and will need the size added into the black box in a program like Paint or Photoshop. Sizes from 6 to 7 7/8 are supplied and sized to fit into said black box. Google Drive: (they won't let me upload the .zip) https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1q8ABI1u3fO1PbLByvM95jiHTQRxcgsjV?usp=sharing The print size is 1.5" by 2.5" (3.8 cm by 6.35 cm) at 300 dpi. The gray area is not meant to be visible when in the cap. Hopefully this helps at least one person out there. Thanks for your time.
  7. Hi all, My name's Simon and I came across this website about a week ago. Thankfully my account was verified quickly so I can participate in the discussions. I primarily collect garrison caps, as I've always thought they were pretty cool ever since I was a kid (the collection stands at 16 at the time of this posting.) It isn't much, but the collection continues to grow. I've also got a few uniforms, including my grandfather's ike jacket from his service during Korea. Interestingly, he was given an ike jacket from WW2 (Baltimore Mfg dated 6/9/44) despite being drafted in '53. Anyway, glad to join y'all here, and thanks for having me.
