French Infantry Medic's Kepi for Lieutenant
This is a Lieutenant’s kepi worn by a French Infantry medic during the early 20th century (1910). It has a crimson velvet body, typical of all medic’s kepis, and a red turban of the Infantry. The medical corps Aesculapian staff insignia is embossed on each of the chinstrap side buttons. Furthermore, the Lieutenant rank is determined by the two gold stripes that run horizontally around the top of the velvet body.
