Good eye, didn't notice that.

Revisiting this photo Kurt A noticing the chinstrap, after study, this chinstrap s not even your standard officers service cap chinstrap, which is what, what s this called, flat bullion???, this one he's wearing is a metal one with vertical segmented whatever you want to call it, doesn't appear to be slide keepers either. Wonder what it is he's wearing, a chinstrap form a civilian Marching Band Shako??? And why is wearing it?
