USMC Garrison Cap - Made in Australia


ParaOps

Recommended Posts

Hello Gents,

 

Today I was lucky enough to find a nice 1943 dated Australian made USMC side cap. The cap is in mint condition and has a small hole designed to take a screw back badge, but has a K.G. Luke marked collar as the hat badge. Does anyone have any other information on these caps?

Cap probably made during rest and refit fro 1st Marine division after Guadalcanal. It was made in the state of Victoria but EGA doesn't look like Australian made. I think it's officers M1926 version.

We all know the nicknames (pisscutter, and others more offensive), but in the Marine Corps it's not a side cap. It's called a garrison cap, or garrison cover.

That is very cool with the correct K.G. Luke emblem. An Aussie-made cap and emblem! The left-facing collar emblem would be correct for the garrison cover.
