OVERSEAS CAP

Soldiers only wore this cap when they were stationed overseas. They are ridiculously easy to find in antique stores, but only if you wear a 7 or 7. Antique stores will have them for about $10 and $20 - 30 for a reproduction. Just make sure you get one with the engineer's piping, which is scarlet and white.
