If anybody attempts them they will have to be careful. A very difficult shape to get right. Invaluable also for WWI and early WWII. Many troops in Burma in WWII had them for parades and general issue but preferred the bush hat like the Aussies. My father in law used his Wolseley or pith for everything but its intended use.
In the UK we have Turner Classic Movies (TCM) on cable and the old Coop films figure regularly but not the one you mentioned.
