Yes...but when went away the use of sidecaps?....or are they still in use? I search in the web and see peaked caps and berets...but I can not find sidecaps...only in old pictures..

To my knowledge, sidecaps, or Field Service Caps (FSC) are still in wear for mess dress. I believe that is an older cap, likely 1960s.
