An original WW2 or Pre-war Royal Engineers coloured side cap complete with an original King George VI brass cap badge.
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 colour with yellow piping. The cap features an original brass Royal Engineers cap badge and two brass general service buttons to the front.
The hat is a good size of approximately 7 1/4 and measures 10 1/2" along the opening.
The overall condition of the hat is very good as can be seen in the pictures. There is plenty of wear to the wool around the top edge and the interior is clean.
All in all, a nice original hat that would make an excellent addition to any WW2 British Army collection.
