It looks like a private purchase cap a lot of Airborne guys among others used them.
Looks rather later than WWII, if that's what
your friend is saying..........
Then do you think that it is pots ww2?.
Thanks and best wishes.
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

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.

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