An original British made Tam O'Shanter cap clearly dated 1940 and in a size 6 7/8.

This pattern of cap was worn by a variety of Scottish regiments during the Second World War in every theatre. It is made from a khaki coloured serge wool and features a tan coloured cotton lining. There is no 'Toorie' fitted to the top.

Inside the cap the original markings are present and are still bright and legible. The maker's name of 'A. & J. Gelfer' of Glasgow is present - A prolific manufacturer of headwear for the British military throughout WW2. The 1940 date is also present as is the War Department broad arrow marking and the size of 6 7/8. The original owner has marked his initials as 'J.A.D' in ink. 

The cap is in very good condition and it displays well. There are signs of wear to the interior but there is no serious damage etc. Please study the pictures before purchasing. 

A fantastic early war example with nice clear markings and in very good condition.
