excellent and crisp imagery - now, can those really be cloth-covered visors worn by some of these people? with wire stiffeners?! I thought all the soft caps with cloth bills were made specifically formless to stuff into pockets.
also nice to see the 'then-n-now' aspect of the portrait locale. thanks a lot for this colloquy.
The imagery is Shea's of a cap that was formerly mine. Brian Maederer found it and sold it to Bruce Burnham, who then sold it to me, and I to Shea...
It was or was not found by a "picker," whatever that means.
Mr. Wim or Mr. Derek can speak to the NCO field cap with the chin strap and the stiffener and such. There are also normal peaked caps with a fiber peak, too.
How many times have I noted that people did not follow orders, and then the disobedience was made regulation as an act of realism.
A fact that does not well fit into the collector "textbooks" of certain on line savants.
In any case, a marvelous picture.
