Come back, Panama! To the anniversary of the headdress



Going over fishing supplies, I came across an old army Panama, who served me faithfully and on a business trip to places where the sun from a friend often turns into an enemy. Plain cotton panama with a plain soldier's red asterisk.

Those who spent their youth in Central Asia, Afghanistan and some other regions, keep this army rarity at home. A very convenient thing. And in the rain, the head will save, and in the heat from sunstroke it will save, and it can easily fit in a pocket when the need for a headdress disappears.



For most, even those with a Panama hat история it began and ended exactly when the documents on dismissal from the ranks of the SA or Navy were received. But this headdress has a very interesting history. The story that marks 80 years this year!

It was in March, 1938, by the decision of the Council of People's Commissars Panama was introduced as a headdress for all categories of military personnel who served in areas with hot climates. It is for all categories, regardless of military rank and position.



If you look at the chronicles of those pre-war years, you can see the future Marshal Zhukov in Panama. It is true then he was a comic book, commanded 1 th army group at Khalkhin Gol. And in the Crimea, the fighters and commanders flaunted it in the panama. They say there were parts in the Caucasus.



By the way, those Panamas were a little different from our Afghans. But the army force was the same. The fact is that the same order was applied to Panamas as to other headgear.

Remember the band on the cap? By the color of the band it was possible to distinguish the belonging of the serviceman to the different types of troops. Multicolored, which even today remains a special army tradition.

For prewar Panama was invented an easier way to identify. On the "forehead" was sewn an asterisk of the color of the kind of troops to which the soldier belonged. And already on this cloth star the metal was pricked.



There was another difference. True, this is a technological difference. The appearance of oilcloth has led to the replacement of the cloth chin strap on oilcloth. And in the first samples there was exactly the same fabric as the material of the Panama itself.

Do you remember what the dandies looked like in Afghanistan? If you do not thread the chinstrap back to its original position, but simply put Panama on the edges and reinforce it on top, then ... What is not the first guy in the village? Where are all these cowboys and Mexicans!



Again, if the commander sticks in, even when bringing Panama in order, the curved edges remained for some time. And let the foreman even turn green looking for wire in the fields of Panama. Army Force ...

In general, it is strange for me that Panamas have forgotten. All these caps and other modern hats are beautiful. The officers wore caps in Afghanistan. But all this beauty has one important disadvantage. Ears of soldiers!

Not some abstract ears, but those that were given from birth. And they burn in sunny weather, so that the pain is given in the brain. There's also close anatomically. Centimeters



Today, our MTRs operate in various conditions, including in Syria. Yes, and other soldiers, too. Any aircraft technician at the airport why suffer? Panama will save the sun from the "love". Well, not the same fools were the Soviet generals, when in 1969 they adopted Panama’s new model.

So let's celebrate the anniversary of our army Panama. And those who know this headdress personally, and those who saw him only on TV. Let him come back faster.

And at the expense of Panama, so replicas are now sold a lot, as is often seen remake under Afghan and the form of the Second World War.

                        yes I absolutely agree with you that you can’t buy a real bayonet-knife in the store, as far as I understand this cold steel. The boys presented a real bayonet-knife from AK-74 with a black ebonite handle, it can be seen that they scored it on the handle, in general, was at work. We tried with a friend to break the blade, but without fanaticism, hell happened there. A nail seven bites truth you need to make an effort. Hardly suitable for throwing No. I think the balance is not the same, but it’s easy to stab. I don’t know why there is a blade of such a size in it, the uncle of a wild boar always pricked with Finnish and was enough, and here the horse-radish laughing The former warrior’s garage neighbor saw that you would see his face shake and his eyes burned, begged to sell for any money, exchange for another knife, donate, then the police threatened to drunk, they explained that it wasn’t done that the gift was not given, but sell then how to look in the eyes of the brother?

I don’t know the truth or not, but how did he explain to me that the fabric was special and it seemed like not from Central Asian cotton but from better quality Egyptian ... and showed that it was some kind of cotton or hb I don’t remember anymore and the fact that weaving a special diagonal is called and now there is no such fabric ..

      "Dumpy, of course, for hot regions"
      The real panama was two-layer with felt between the layers. This felt was like a thermos: it did not let it overheat in the summer and warmed it in the winter. On the hottest days, and served in Tajikistan, where +45 was not uncommon, they dipped a panama in the water, felt wet and did not dry for a long time, gradually evaporating the water and allowed the head to cool. This was especially true on the march-throws. We ran up the gorge along the river, so that water could be reached.
      All in all, Panama was a wonderful, carefully thought out headdress. good

        I agree about the temperature. But the sun bakes quite differently. I was in Abkhazia in the month of July, the temperature is 35, but the sun was so hot that it was not possible to be on the beach. You get a burn immediately without habit. Therefore, Panama was not always given where ears burn, it was laid there.

In my city it’s as easy as shelling pears --- we have such a “Bird Market”, so men and women sit in winter and summer (seemingly former warrant officers, I’m joking))) in trading tents right on the street and these tents are crammed with new Soviet uniforms --- boots, raincoats, trousers, belts,
      mbezy tankers and technicians, in general, everything .... Very smart guys, I often go to this market and always go to a museum, I admire: everything is natural, solid and practical, and also legendary for people who care.
      And your story that you wore yours in the country reminded me of one of my acquaintances, he often had to intersect on business matters in his country house ... so he also moves in the country only in his panama, which he brought from Afghanistan as a young lieutenant. I suspect that a lot of you are wandering around the dachas))) And this is good, it seems to me!
      P.S. Well, and if there are no such shops (that I described) within walking distance, that is, a bunch of online stores of military equipment. These are by mail, although they will send Alexander the Great’s helmet))). Put on a brand new one and imagine that it gave you its foreman soldier

        Now for the money and "foreman" will come. Only this is fetishism. I call our restorers World War II “fetishists” and they are offended .. But the best “German with a gun” I saw only when dressed as Valerake from Minsk. Well, you can’t confuse a glossy “Fritz” with anything, everything is in the smallest detail, blue eyes, even MG machine-gun belts hang on your shoulders .... Well, the hand itself “reaches for the grenade in the pouch”. Panama also had a chance to wear, as she gets wet with sweat when you climb mountains, but the thing is not interchangeable from the sun. We sometimes spun fields in a cowboy manner. Fashion ... Only manage to center the star ... by the fields you can’t determine it from the side or the front.
        PS ... On the second of August in Beret and Telnik I traveled to Beverly Hills, to Sunset Bulevard, rummaged for half a day there, here and there .... I didn’t find any of my own. And do not care for everyone, even go naked. Pichal ..

          Yeah, Muk-Skorokhod, EPT ... From Toronto to Los Angeles in 3 hours.

          And when will the "tracer" stop lying? He is an "athlete", "sniper" and also a "Canadian". Some kind of sur, when are you going to fall, "tracer"? "Trasser" is a fighter on parcels, most often among old servicemen ...

    Yes, panama - it’s just better than the “experimental” cap / in the TurkVO, the uniform with pockets appeared in1985 and for some reason was called the “experimental” / ... Oh, thanks, for the memory ... I remember the dent above, called the female mono-organ, according to the soldier’s tradition, it was supposed to be worn with a “scoop” and higher. The older is the whiter. And, damn it, here's a twerk-nevert, I had such a case. They shot at a dispute with the Komar platoon “Makar” / near the AKS-74U / in such a panama with 30 steps. Inside the panama, where there is such a leatherette strip, I don’t remember what for the ring was laid out of cardboard, corresponding to the "perimeter" of the head of the carrier and a width of 4-5 cm. So, here, the bullets pierced through the panama’s “cap” itself, and hitting it / lying on a sand hill / in the plane of this cardboard, it got stuck, halfway out of the outlet. I remember they thought that the cartridge was defective, stuffed a cartridge from another zinc, but after some time about the same result was repeated. Figs knows what it was / maybe it was said that +55 was in the shade / but, movies with chases, where traffic policemen were driving holes from Kamaz from the PM, I looked with skepticism.

      We conscripted panama wore. In winter - earflaps. It was still cold in winter - snow, wind, however. The caps of the “experimenter” were among some officers and ensigns, but did not take root.

    andrej-shironov,
    unfortunately I can’t tell you anything on the links, because I’m used to watching it live, and I happened to like to buy a slide (alloy 5) I liked the quality and the solutions in it, I saw a colleague also took exactly the same one, I took He serves on the advice of a man in special forces.

    A fabric star is not specially invented for panama, it is green on the grandfather’s budennovka, and the other grandfather in the photo (September 29th) also has a cap on it.

    And initially Panamanian hats are made in Ecuador. From a plant called carludovica. Durable.

    Panama protected from the sun well, but Afghanistan, it is different. There were enough seasons and places to thoroughly freeze snot.
    Therefore, this option saved me well:

    Yes, she’s still wild - Panama. But only in this way, her head sweated and the dermantine edging inside was constantly wet. I respect both the relic and the peculiarity of service in the SA, there Panama is a rarity. He brought a couple home, but not that.
    And from tricks - yes - bleached, soaked with a light PVA solution (to keep the shape), yes the crown was pulled out (minaret), and the “daisy” was made in the fields ... But I didn’t care - I enjoyed nature and freedom at the point (when Sev.kavkaztsev could give an answer).
    For me - Panama - the memory of the dignity over the beginning threat of the "representatives" of the Caucasus.
    The rest - moderators - will not be missed.

    Yes, Panama is a thing! 2 years went in it when he served in Priozersk on about. Balkhash. But when the demobilization went, there wasn’t enough to grab onto a citizen. Then it came to pass, but it was too late ...

    Interestingly, on the popular American site of used military equipment, buyers note the best quality of the Soviet panama compared to the American one (at least from Vietnam). But the depth of influence of American culture, even on the most ardent patriots of Russia, is immeasurable.

    I must say the cap was not practical.
    Always strove to fly off the head. Only for carrying needles with thread.

    Panama, demi-season, sometimes wear for low temperatures.
    The plastic tape inside the panama is slightly annoying. Not Camille.
    A star on a panama can often be on the side.

    Pathos,
    melee weapons, the blade breaks down at the expense of one or two attempts to throw, the balance is designed to hit just like a bayonet - it is fastened as a continuation of the machine, in the hand is inconvenient for doing anything (except for biting)
