    Any idea on the date of it? The wartime ones I have seen either have wire mesh covered vent holes or are just sewn around the edge. It looks good and not something I see for sale or know that much about. The owl is cool.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    This is ww2 issue?
    We Aussies used them in Korea and Vietnam and called them 'giggle hats'.

    Jerry the hat came out in Jan. 41 the first ones had only one vent hole then they went to two vent holes just don't know when they made the change. after that they went to the mesh covered vents

    I know they were first issued during WWII, though did not know they came out so early or the chronology/details of them, thanks for explaining.
