WW2 - USAAF/Army Officer CRUSHER CAP H. GRAEME McDONALD

"Flighter" crusher cap, olive green of wool.
This cap has a gold Army Overseas emblem on a leather flap. The top of the hat is unstructured; this "crusher" style was often worn by US Air Force fighter pilots during/after WW2.

Standard Army/AAF officer's cap, worn by both pilots and non-pilots. Pilots gave this cap their unique twist by removing the stiffeners. They were a support piece behind the cap device and around the inner circumference to maintain the round shape of the cap. These kept the cap in the regulatory military form and angle. However, bomber pilots wore headsets over their cap during flights and removed the wire reinforcement for greater comfort. As a result, the sides of the caps were crushed. The caps retained their sagging "crushed" look, giving the pilot who wore it the look of an experienced veteran.
