2nd lieutenant cap

Recommended Posts

Think there was something lost in translation, lieutenant rank is usually referred to as "bars", like bars of silver or gold (barre d'argent ou d'or). These are first lieutenant bars. They look WW2 vintage, possibly British made, and curved for wear on the shoulder to me.

Army lieutenant bars measure 1" (or 2.5 cm) for hats and uniforms. The US Navy and US Marines used 2 sizes of rank, but the army only used these.
