An original 1940 Dated British Army Field Service Cap in a size 7.
This pattern of cap came into issue with the British Army shortly before the beginning of the Second World War and saw use throughout the conflict. It was replaced by the General Service Cap in 1943 but remains an iconic piece of British Headwear today.
The interior of the cap is marker with the makers name ‘S. P. Harris’, the 1940 date and the size which is 7. The War Department broad arrow marking is also present as is usually the case with these markings.
The cap is in excellent condition as can be seen in the pictures. There are only limited signs of wear although there are a few marks to the interior. Overall it displays very well.
Altogether a very nice cap in a very hard to find extra large size. This would make a great addition to a collection or could suit a re-enactor.
