An original Auxiliary Territorial Services Peaked Cap clearly dated 1943 and in good condition.
This pattern of cap is the Second Pattern issued to the ATS during the Second World War and features a brown leather chin strap rather than the earlier serge type. It features a rayon lining as is standard with issue caps and a hard peak which has a green underside. The peak has some shaping to it which is typical of issued caps.
The interior still bears the War Department broad acceptance stamp which is surmounted by the letter 'N' and denotes 1943 as the year of issue.
As is common, the original owner has marked her name to the underside of the peak. It is hard to read but could possibly be the name 'Dempster'.
The cap is a small size of approximately 6 1/2. It will fit on a display head and looks nice when on.
The condition of the hat is good overall and it displays nicely. The serge still has plenty of its nap and the interior only shows limited signs of wear. There is however a few moth nips to the top of the hat as detailed in the pictures. Please study the pictures and remember that this is an issued, pre-worn item of over 70 years old.
A good original ATS cap which displays nicely and would make a good addition to any WW2 collection.
