An original 1944 Dated RAF Ordinary Airman’s Forage Cap in good condition and in a size 7.
This pattern of cap came into issue with the RAF during the 1930s and saw issue throughout the Second World War, being replaced with a beret in the immediate post-war years. It was worn by all airmen under the rank of Flight Sergeant and is now an iconic piece of Second World War headwear.
The cap features a brass kings crown cap badge which is almost certainly original to the cap. As well as this two black plastic kings crown buttons are fitted to the front of the cap.
Inside the cap the original maker's markings are still present and legible. The maker's name of 'S. & P. Harris Ltd' of Glasgow is present as is the 1944 date and the size of 7. As well as this the War Department broad arrow marking can also be clearly seen.
The cap is in good condition as can be seen in the pictures with some signs of age and wear. The black interior lining is good with only some signs of service wear etc. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing.
A nice original RAF cap which is clearly dated. This would make a great addition to any WW2 collection!
