    Correct, US Enlisted mans summer weight cap. I have not seen the blue backing before around a cap badge. But I have seen the same around collar dogs, blue being for the Infantry.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is an officers model cap with a 1950's infantry cap device.

    I think the insignia is even later - Vietnam era.

    A nice cap, and in great shape. You should have
    no trouble finding a WWII badge for it.

    Hi Steve, you are correct it is indeed an OFFICERS cap, I failed to look at the cap band, which being ribbed is officers quality. I agree with Walkwolf Steve, take the badge off and replace it with another correct one.

    Cheers, Ade.
