Country of Origin: France
Dirt cheap commercial re-manufacture hats in French Lizard, apparently intended for Portuguese military at some point but never issued. The pattern itself dates back to the late 1940s and first saw widespread use in French Indochina. In many ways, it inspired the development of later "Lizard" and "Tiger Stripe" patterns, making it fairly important when it comes to military history. The pattern even saw later use among communist guerillas fighting in South Africa and Rhodesia, giving it a fairly long service life.
These particular hats are constructed in the French F1 Kepi style, making them ideal for reworking or just as a neat collectors piece with rather mysterious origins.
