Developed in 1951, the CAP,FIELD,O.D.,MQ-1 was one of the most popular pieces of headwear throughout the colder seasons for soldiers during the Korean War. Constructed from a cotton poplin in olive drab shade #7, the Pile cap was wool alpaca lined and had ear flaps that could easily be either worn down or tied up. The front visor could be folded down to provide protection from glare, but was more commonly seen worn up with the wearer’s rank insignia pinned through it.
