Blue denim overseas cap


Recommended Posts

Last night, I purchased a large uniform grouping to vet that was a mechanic in the 6th AAC in WWII. Among the items was this denim overseas cap. I haven't seen this type of headgear before, nor have I heard of it. Is anyone familiar with this cap? There is no QM tag. The cap does not appear to be theater made.

On page 99 of Stanton's book US ARMY UNIFORMS OF WORLD WAR II there's a photo of three soldiers wearing the "1940-pattern blue denim work clothing" and one of them clearly is wearing a denim garrision cap such as the one in your photo. I would imagine those are pretty rare.

 

There's a post on this forum showing some blue denim uniforms: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...33&hl=denim

I actually have that book, but most of the stuff featured in it is experimental, and I never got familiar with the book because I doubted that I would ever find that type of stuff. I will check that page out tonight.
