    Default U.S. British Made Overseas Cap, 1918

    Hi guys,

    I picked this up in Des Moines last week. It's a pretty neat cap, and it fits in well with all of my other British-made stuff. It also has a cool 'D' company, infantry regiment collar disk affixed to the front. Hope you all like it!

    P.S. I learned that Iowa is a frighteningly cold place to live. To all of those who live there, I suggest you get out before you freeze to death.

    Many issue uniform items were manufactured in Great Britain. Tunics, pants, caps, helmets, etc.. Marked with a broad arrow.
    You will find private purchase items also. London and Paris made, usually officers items but once in awhile enlisted.

    Nice to see one of these old timers still around and in nice shape. Not all that often seen these days.
    (Iowa? Cold?? You poor pups...you should try it up near the Canada border by the Great lakes...lol)
