Please would you help me in finding some precisions on these 2 garrison caps that I have since more than 20 years now in my collection.

1) The first is a white cotton type, that crosses in front AND back, and black horizontal lines, as shown on the picture. A tag in sewed in, refering to a Kansas City Mfg.

I made a parallel w/ a prisoner hat that I have too in my collection, which shows too some black stripes , and a big "P" printed on front AND back, as show too on the picture attached.

Does anyone can give me some informations on the garrison white cap ?

I was told it's a prisoner garrison cap. But does anyone of you confirme this idea ?


2) The other one is a khaki worsted officer garrison cap, w/ leather sweatband, and light grey satin lining. But I don't know the ref. of the piping. It's an Orange & Yellow piping.

Does anyone know what this piping means ?


I thank you very much beforhand for your help.

And I wish you a great day !

François ( in France )
