Dutch Army officer’s service cap
A current issue officer’s service cap in a brownish olive-drab color. This particular cap was issued to a “Captain Krull.” The shape of the cap—particularly the visor—is very reminiscent of British caps of WWII vintage and is rather unusual to see in today’s European military headgear. It’s also interesting to note that the cap was made by Albert Kempf in Germany, rather than in Holland! Enlisted men in the Dutch Army have very similar hats, but with a plain vinyl chinstrap and a simple brass lion badge. Service hats for generals are identical to this, but with a red cap band. Again, my warmest thanks to Jos down in the Netherlands!
