An original Women's Auxiliary Air Force Peaked cap in worn condition, dating from the Second World War.
This pattern of cap saw issue throughout WW2 and is similar in design to other caps designed for other women's services. It features an RAF blue grey coloured saxony serge wool crown, black patent leather peak with green underside and a rayon lining. A black mohair band is fitted around the circumference of the hat through which a brass King's crown RAF cap badge is fitted. There is also a black patent leather chin strap fitted to the front of the cap.
The cap is in worn condition and clearly saw plenty of action during its service life. The serge top is faded and worn down and the peak shows signs of use and age. Overall it is a solid cap and has an authentic, 'been there' look to it.
The cap measures 21 1/2" around the inside circumference so will suit a size 6 7/8 head.
A nice original wartime cap which would make a good addition to any wartime collection.
