    Using all my willpower to not make 'special needs' jokes here...

    Nice cap mate, I believe I have one very similar somewhere dating from the 1970's. Cheers

    I do like these bush-hats very much and it reminds me about a period,
    55 years ago.

    I did also wear a sort of bushhat, but it had another form and was
    especially meant for the parade- and walking-out dress. It was the
    common headdress for land forces (Landmacht), when serving at
    the former Dutch colony Nieuw-Guinea (and also at Suriname).
    The inner has a sweatband and a tag with Koninklijke Landmacht.

    I did serve at Nieuw-Guinea from September 1961 until October 1962.
    I still do own one. Left photo: walking-out dress; right photo with
    my army device at the left side. Further shown my special (plastic)
    arm-patch.
