The ‘havelock’ is a piece of cloth, usually linen, that hangs from the back of a cap over one’s neck to protect it from the sun.  I read that it was developed for the soldiers during the American Civil War. I’m not so sure, because of photographs of European and Arabic soldiers going waaaaay back in history.

Anyway, now you know what I know!! 🙂

    I tend to agree with you. Maybe we took credit for it first but I don’t think we invented the havelock.
