    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.
