U.S. Naval Academy midshipman’s cap
Named to Will Burney, 25th Company, this cap turned up without it’s badge at a Copenhagen flea market. I’ve been told that when the Annapolis midshipmen graduate, they all throw their caps in the air and many end up as souvenirs in the hands of spectators. Getting a replacement badge turned out to be a major project and after long, frustrating conversations with the Naval Academy bookshop and several local uniform suppliers, the one I finally found turned up on eBay for five bucks.
