Original WW2 RAF Officers Service Dress Cap by 'Burberrys'

Code: 50412

SOLD

A beautiful mid-late War example of an RAF officers peaked cap which would be ideal for a Bomber Command, Second Tactical Air Force or similar display.

The cap is made by 'Burberrys' as can be identified by the interior label. The cap features light coloured stitching which is often sought after by collectors and certainly makes for an attractive cap.

The mohair band is in very good condition as are both the cloth covered chinstrap buttons. The bullion badge is an excellent example as can be seen in the pictures and is almost certainly original to the cap.

The cap is around about a size 7 so will fit most standard size display heads.

Inside the cap the leather headband is still intact and in good condition. The band is marked W.J.H Kevern and to the back it is marked F/O Kevern. There is also another name which has been covered, possibly a previous owner?

The overall condition of the hat is very good indeed with no damage or mothing what-so-ever. It displays exceptionally well and would be hard to better. The only slight problem with the cap is some damage to the lining, although this is purely cosmetic.

Overall, a truly stunning wartime cap which would compliment any RAF collection without a doubt.
