French Navy 1st Class General Mechanic Engineer's Visor Cap named to A.C. Coulon
This is a French Navy 1st Class General Mechanic Engineer’s visor cap from World War II (1939-1945). The cap features a gold wire embroidered naval officer’s cap badge on the front. Below the badge is an embroidered cap band, similar to those worn by flag rank officers but has the mechanic engineer’s emblem on the middle front. The double row of embroidery distinguishes this cap from the 2nd Class General, which only has one row. A gold double corded chinstrap is attached to the front by a set of naval officers chinstrap side buttons. On the inside is a manufacturer’s label for Maison Nicolas. The hat belonged to 1st Class General Mechanic Engineer A.C. Coulon.
