USN Foul Weather Cap Sou Wester?


Recommended Posts

Hello

I hope this is the right section

 

What are your thoughts on this hat?

I can not find much on this type of headgear.

It came with some military stuff and not sure if its military or civilian?

Thank You

Tony

Would merchant marines have worn this? Possibly?

. Everyone who went out on a boat, or who hung around the shore would have worn them. This is v pretty much civilian. Looks civilian due to the construction and lack of any real stamps or markings. USMS? Maybe, but I think they got most of their foul weather gear from the USN.
