Original 1943 Dated Canadian Tam O'Shanter - Size 7 3/4


Code: 52435

An original Canadian Tam O'Shanter cap clearly dated 1943 and in a large size 7 3/4.

This pattern of cap was worn by a variety of Canadian regiments during the Second World War in a variety of theatres of war. It is of the same design as the Tam O'Shanters worn by Scottish units during the same period but is made of a greener khaki serge than British made examples. The cap features a drawstring to the rear which is fastened in a bow and a woolen ball, or 'Toorie' is fitted to the top of the crown. 

Inside the cap the original markings are present and are still bright and legible. The maker's name of 'Brill Cap ,Winnepeg, Canada' is present as is the 1943 date and the size of 7 3/4.

The cap is in excellent condition and appears to be unworn. It shows no signs of previous wear or use and displays extremely well. 

A fantastic large size example which would be hard to better!
