An original WW2 or Pre-war Royal Army Service Corps coloured side cap in good condition.
This style of cap was popular during the pre-war years as well as during the war and were worn for walking out. The construction and materials of this particular example are typical of those seen used in the 1930s and 40s and it is certainly not a later post-war example.
The cap is a deep navy blue with white piping. The cap features an original brass cap badge and two brass general service buttons to the front. The cap badge has been heavily polished to the point where a lot of the detail is missing. A great feature of what was clearly an often worn piece of headwear.
The hat is a smaller size and I would say no bigger than a 6 7/8. It measures 10" along the opening.
The overall condition of the hat is very good as can be seen in the pictures. It has been well looked after and displays well.
All in all, a nice original hat that would make an excellent addition to any WW2 British Army collection.
