Possible erdl boonie hat?

Recommended Posts

Hi, hoping you can help me out in the UK to see if you think this boonie hat is erdl or a copy. I love a boonie and in looking for a modern replacement to the one my kids lost on the beach but spotted this for £5 on eBay. Took a flyer so prepared for this to be a copy or modern BDU etc. It is used and small with just the laundering tag but can see where the other label would have been sewn on. It has had use and worn around the edges. The colours are dull and possibly pics make it look brighter. Hope it is Vietnam era but if not I love it any how and for £5 the kids can lose it...next one comes out of their pocket money. Hopefully you can help me out. Thanks for all comments. Mark

It looks to be either ERDL or the later RDF pattern.  The brown does not look right for BDU, nor does the pattern.
