A good original example of the British Army GS beret as worn by the British soldier from 1943 onwards and synonymous with the Normandy Campaign.
The beret is in good overall condition, the serge is nice with two holes in the correct position for a cap badge.
The beret is marked inside as a size 7 and is also stamped 1945. The original owners service number has also been stamped inside. The cotton lining is in good condition and shows little sign of wear.
A nice beret, ideal for the collector and reenactor alike.
