    Hello.
    A friend have given away to me this chocolate (OD) garrison cap.
    What do you think about it ?.
    He said me that it is original. But I have never seen a chocolate garrison with this
    paratrooper patch.

    It looks like a private purchase cap a lot of Airborne guys among others used them.

    your friend is saying..........

    Yes - looks like 60's/Vietnam era to me, but I don't know
    when this particular shade of green came about. All of
    the US overseas caps I have are actually a brown
    colour. I'll try and remember to post
    them here.........

    Definitely it is not a WWII cap. Standard Garrison Caps were of different shape. This "Piss cutter" is made in a form adopted at the end of 40's. (after 1947). However, non regular custom-made caps of the referenced fashionable shape were used during WWII especially by paratroopers, but here we have standard manufacturing example as indicated by the label.

    These are my garrison caps. You can compare the chocolate one with the others.
    How do you see them?.
    Thanks.

    It's a tough call with the colours not being
    correct due to lighting conditions, but as
    said, your OD one looks post-war.........

    Hi,

    From what I heard, Chocolate Brown NCO garrison hat were mostly British Made. (I've seen few examples)

    From the photos they look like wartime examples.
