Great caps Thomas smile 

You probably have seen this link.  If by chance not it may be of interest - apparently the flag of the M29.

Re: KM NCO caps!

Nice headgear Thomas! I especially like the NCO cap. Wondered what type of attachment there is for the cap eagle? Funny about the number on the overseas cap that he was only a POW in England as the number acts like a US serviceman's ID which it can't be. Thanks for showing!      Barron

Re: KM NCO caps!

Nice caps Thomas.

I also have a black KM cap. Maybe they were intended to be issued as PZ caps and somehow they ended in KM.

The sewing on the cap might have been his POW number.
