Hi Peter:

I thought this might be of interest to you. It is a British made overseas cap in "Forestry Green" with EGA badge and USMC buttons. I know the British style cap was popular with US troops despite never having been actually issued to them. Finding a Marine variant, therefore, is a tall order.

And, here's the rest of the story: 11/13th Regiment of the Fifth Marine Brigade. Sorry about the color balance; it's more than a little off.

My dear wife Enid is a wise woman. She has said, "no uniforms." Her true fear is that we'll move to Texas and I buy field artillery!

But uniforms worry her too! :x
