Default Japanese navy cap

Hello everyone,

Could you identify me this Japanese Navy cap please? Is it attributed to an officer or a sailor? For summer ?
Also if you could give me the translation of the name inscribed inside it would be great!

Thank you, best regards.

Navy officer (two bands).


Name: Mori
Rank: 予少尉 [yo-sho'i] pre-2nd Lieutenant


As I recall, officers had to successfully graduate an officer academy, then serve a term as a probationary 2nd lieutenant before being fully commissioned.

Love the metal grommets! Not often seen on these. The only down side is they rust out so easily.
