Officer's summer khaki visor cap ID


Recommended Posts

Dear Forum users,
Some time ago I purchased this khaki summer cap. Presumably, it was made during WWII, however no definitive proof is visible.
I tried to do some research as regards the name of the former owner - Lt.Col. Sandison, however with no success
Despite having quite high army rank, he was not mentioned under the sources available for me.
Therefore, I would be very happy finding your kind assistance - maybe you know something more about the mysterious Lt.Col. Sandison, serving within the US Army or US Army Air Force between 1941 and beginning of '50s?
Yours faithfully,
Tomasz

There's these topics on him, consensus is he's one Donald C. Sandison, commissioned Reserves in 1935 in the Cavalry.

 

This one here where his whole uniform was posted, but link is dead.

In this topic there is a suggestion he may have switched to the Armored Forces, but again link to uniform is dead.

I am so happy finding your reply. I always try to identify the original owners of artefacts from my collection. I call it as a recovery of the forgotten history. Once found, all data are written and attributed to specific items. This cap is no longer anonymous then. Thank you very much!

Tom.
