An original Royal Norfolk Regiment officers coloured field service cap dating from the Second World War.
These coloured service caps were popular private purchase items during the Second World War as well as in the 1930s. This particular example is an officer's quality example and is very well made. It is made from a black wool and features yellow piping as well as a yellow crown. The front retains two original Royal Norfolk Regiment embossed buttons and the side of the cap has a small silver coloured cap badge, all of which are made by J. R. Gaunt.
The interior of the cap is typical of the period featuring a rayon lining and velvet headband.
The hat is a large size measuring around 12” long. I estimate it to be a size 7 3/8 - 7 1/2.
The cap is in nice condition and displays well. There are some signs of wear and age etc so please study the pictures before purchasing.
Altogether a nice private purchase cap to a county regiment which would make an excellent addition to any collection.
