    First time poster! I found this hat stuffed in the same envelope as my Grandfathers Honorable Discharge papers. My Grandfather served in the 30th Infantry Company E from 1942-45. i was given all his medals and paperwork after he passed. This hat came up and I have no clue as to what it was for or if it was issued etc. any info that someone may have would be great. My son and I have researched it and can't come up with much. Thanks in advance for any input!

    Hi, and welcome!

    The cut of the cap is in Female form.

    I would suggest it is not military at all, but a patriotic item worn by a lady on the home front.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Welcome to the forum, I agree with Ade that the cap is a female type/pattern. All I would add is that I have seen cap badges mounted on black ribbons or material, much in the tradition of "mourning brooches", so maybe it was worn out of respect for a fallen relative? Leon.

    You have a woman's hat!

    Perhaps from a lady friend.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
