The hat COULD be a trial DPM tropical version......it's made in standard 68 pattern cotton-sateen with a green poplin lining of the early 70s era......DPM tropical kit was under development in the early 70s and was finally introduced around 1975-76.........the hat ultimately issued for tropical use being in a lighter, unlined poly-cotton fabric.......are there any markings...???

 

There was some production of commercial DPM clothing during the 70s for private purchase and for the hunting, shooting, fishing fraternity.....much in "issue" cloth.........

No. There are no markings.

I did think it may be non issue but the cloth feels right for MODand the stitching is too well done.
