SOLD

An excellent example of a British Army Officers Forage Cap complete with plastic economy Royal Artillery cap badge.

These caps were used during the Great War by Officers (particularly those in the Royal Flying Corps) and became a popular alternative to the peaked cap during the Second World War.

This example is most likely a Second War example as most found these days date from that period. There is no date present, as there rarely is with private purchase uniform, but these caps were never really seen in use after the Second World War.

The overall condition of the cap is excellent as can be seen in the photographs. The wool barathea used to make the body of the cap is perfect with no rips, tears or signs of moth. The front of the cap features two officers quality General Service buttons which are in perfect condition.

The cap features a plastic economy Royal Artillery 'Ubique' cap badge which sets the cap off nicely.

The interior of the cap is very clean showing only minimal signs of wear. This of course doesn't detract from how the cap displays.

The cap is a decent large size of about a 7 1/4.

Overall, a fantastic condition example of a private purchase officers cap which would truly be hard to better.
