US Overseas/Garrison Cap

Article about: I have this overseas or garrison cap, which I believe is a USAAF EM cap? It wrongly has Captains bars. My question is what insignia if any would normally be worn in place of the Officers bar

    Nice caps, enlisted men were aloud to were their DUI on their overseas caps, I have seen some occasionally with collar brass instead, (which is against reg)
    Thanks,

    I think I'll go with that, the winged collar brass as in the photo above, as it seems USAAF EM usually wore no metal insignia like AZPhil's photo, but quite a few wore DUI cloth patches, glider troops etc.

    Thanks to everybody for their help.

    OK, this is what I've done. I got hold of a collar badge, and an Officer's braided cap, so now hopefully everything is correct. If not, let me know. I've put a pre WW2 unmarked Captains bars on my new cap, and taken a few shots in decent light to compare EM and Officers USAAF braid.

    I was lucky enough to have the bars in a job lot of buttons and stuff for not too much money.
