Original WW2 RAF Officer's Forage Cap

Original WW2 RAF Officer's Forage Cap

Code: 55633


An original Royal Air Force officers' forage cap dating from the Second World War. 

These caps were a popular alternative to the peaked cap for RAF officers during WW2 as they were much easier to store in a pocket or similar. They were worn throughout the war in all theatres.

This example is made from the standard RAF blue coloured barathea wool which is usually used for this pattern of hat. It features a brass King's crown badge to the left side and two brass King's crown RAF buttons to the front. The interior of the cap is lined with a mushroom coloured rayon and features a velvet headband.

The hat is a larger size which is approximately a 7 1/4. When laid flat it measures 10 3/4" along the length of the opening. 

The cap is in good condition as can be seen in the pictures. It displays very well with only limited signs of wear and age but please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage item which may have small flaws commensurate with age. 

A nice original wartime side cap in good condition.
