Korean A-3 Shelter Half cap.

When the call up came again, Jack was not surprised. His record during his WWII service was exemplary, and he had four Messerschmitts to his credit and a pair of Focke Wulf 190 Doras’. But Korea was a different war and Jack felt he needed something familiar. When he touched down in Pusan, the first thing he did was to take his issue half shelter and have it remade into his favourite Papa Nui Cap. His Papa A-3 had served him well all though Europe in the last war and he felt comfortable knowing that the Papa had him covered again.
