Smaller versions of bullion embroidered crossed cannons were worn on the front of forage caps. This one is from Captain Hawley's forage cap (kepi) and is photographed here on the cap. The muzzles of the cannons have a flare to them to a greater extent than many other examples. This insignia is on an oval piece of dark blue velvet and is bordered by Jaceron wire. Some other forage cap insignia were worn cut out and not bordered by the Jaceron wire. Crossed cannon continue in use by the U.S. Army as the branch insignia of artillery today.
