    Hi Jareth,

    Thanks for your input, i've given the cap a thoural inspection and can give some details that might help. The cap is made
    of a two layer construction, a outer shell and liner of a woven material. The patch is sewn on to the outer layer of the cap.
    I was able to separate the woven material of the liner and see the backsides of the stitches used to secure the patch.
    IMO the patch was on the cap before the liner was sewn inside. The thread used to sew on the patch, and construct the
    rest of the cap is the same. (does'nt show well in photos, but does when in hand.)
    BTW can anyone translate what kanji is left on the tag?

    Take care, Mart

    If my wife wasn't watching TV and tomorrow wasn't mothers day, I've have her come down two flights of stairs and ask her what the translation is....but I ain't tempting fate...

    Maybe Monday if someone doesn't come by first.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Hi Martin,

    Oh boy... EM/NCO field caps have large issue stamps on a cotton muslin/cheese cloth style liner, they also have thread loops around the outside for a havelock. Officers field caps were custom made and had bullion stars about the same size as the EM caps. Even with construction materials changing from early war to late the Japanese adhered to issue stamps for military clothing, it's always the first thing to look for. EM's caps also had the grommets stitch sewn for the side vents and adjustment ties. There isn't a chance any exception to the above is an army cap.
