For my money I thought Prince Hazza in his basedball cap with yank stars and stripes was pretty nifty, though the stars and stripes was a bit of an issue for me until I realised he was staking his claiming to the old Colonies and therefore a touch of genius..
Rather than a baseball cap (too American for my tastes), what do people think about re-introducing the old combat cap but in desert camouflage and weight? It did ok for Rommel and his Afrika Korps mates!
That was our original desert camouflage that we then sold to Iraq. Which is why we then suddenly had to invent our current stuff in the back end of 1990!
I saw one in Afghanistan last year which got me thinking a out it. The desert hats get so tailored by most people that we look like Fred Carno's Army and it doesn't provide any sun protection. Whereas a cap will at least screen the face. Just cannot stomach the thought of sanctioning a baseball cap!
go on gear spotter you know you want to, lets face it, its more about fashion than anything else. everything that is on issue is spot on but the troops will always go that bit extra to keep up with trends, as the saying goes its '90% fashion and 10% practicality'. why else do the troops where trops when cs95 will do the same.
although if you do sign one off then please go for the old stylee afrika korp mitt velcro patches, maybe just do it in beige tho.
