I saw a cotton bush hat at the antique store that looked very similiar to this hat and the price tag was marked FRENCH BUSH HAT $9.99
it was made of thick khaki cotton and had three faded letters on the back of the brim that appeared to be Israeli?
no chin strap
looks like the same hat worn by French army in Indo China in the late 1940's and early 1950's
did the French supply the Israelis with these or is it Israeli made? I may buy it to use for a Indo China soldier display, it was in very good condition but missing the chin strap.
is $9.99 a good deal on these? they dont seem too common? it also had a number 58 stamped inside probably the size number?
