    Have not seen such caps before, but they are very nice.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    They are for enlisted men, officers had more or less similar caps.
    I hope I am correct saying the blue one is transport, the yellow "jagers te paard/chasseur cheval"...

    Belgian Modele 1915 Bonnet Portefeulleis is the term I have found since Kris pointed out to me what the one I have is, well done Kris. It was confusing me the lack of info out there until you sent in the right direction

    Whatever its just an opinion.
