WW1 US Army Overseas Cap
Article Surfer
<— Prev    |    Next —>

Attached is a New York Times article filed from Washington concerning the army's decision to toss out the long-favored and very popular campaign hat in favor of the European-style Overseas hat:

"'When the Americans entered the trenches,' said an official statement today, 'it was found that the brim of their campaign hat interfered with sighting through the trench periscopes and that the high crown, in the case of tall men, could be seen above the parapets. The new cap is so low that it permits the men to move with the same freedom as when they are hatless."
