An original British Army Field Service Cap in good condition. 

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 original stamps are still present to the interior of the cap but are somewhat worn making them hard to read. The maker's name is present as is part of the size with the 7 being visible. The cap is a large size, possibly as big as a 7 1/2 and when laid flat it measures at 10 3/4" along the opening. 

The cap is fitted with an original bi-metal 'The Royal Sussex Regiment' cap badge and two brass king's crown buttons are fitted to the front.

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. 

Altogether a nice cap that would make a good addition to a collection or could suit a reenactor.
