An original Horizon Blue French Army Officers hat in good condition.
This pattern of cap came into use with the French Army in 1917 and saw issue throughout the rest of the Great War. The cap is made from a light blue soft wool and features a full cotton lining to the interior.
The interior features two markings. The first is printed and is possibly a manufactures name which reads 'TRAONOUEZ' whilst the second is written in ink and appears to be a name which reads 'Sives'.
The hat is in reasonable condition for its age but does have various staining and some moth damage, all of which is reflected in the price.
Altogether a good original Great War French item which would make a nice addition to a collection.
