Got this arm band and hat and apparently they go together ?

Could someone please help with the kanji and whether the hat and armband go together ?

Thanks

The second photo is in the correct orientation.  

 

Its an armband for a railway employee 鐡道従業員 = tetsudou juugyouin 

 

The first word on the left side is Jakarta. Going to need a better (close up) photo to read the characters under it.

Thanks Eric

I’ll get you some better photos, are the hat and armband ment to go together ? As the hat looks like a ships wheel.
Also are the armbands collectible

I don't collect in this area so unfortunately I don't know. 

 

Hopefully someone will be able to answer those questions.
