Katanga Gendarmerie jungle hat

Recommended Posts

I bought this Katanga Gendarmerie jungle hat from a Swedish auction site, the seller claiming that it was brought back to Sweden by a UN soldier in 1961. Any thoughts? The cap badge is enamelled, good quality.

Looks ok to me.

I have got the hat and the insigna. Quiet rare item in that configuration.

The hat is on lowest level, the insigna somewhere on the second shelve i think...
