Original 1940 Dated British Army Field Service Cap - 6 7/8


Code: 53370

An original British Army Field Service Cap in good condition dating from 1940 and fitted with a York and Lancaster regiment cap badge. 

This pattern of cap came into issue with the British Army shortly before the beginning of the Second World War and saw use throughout the conflict. It was replaced by the General Service Cap in 1943 but remains an iconic piece of British Headwear today.

The cap is fitted with an original bi-metal 'York and Lancaster' cap badge which is maker marked 'J. R. Gaunt' to the rear and two brass king's crown buttons are fitted to the front.

The original stamps are still present to the interior of the cap. The 1940 date is visible as is the size of 6 7/8.

The cap is in excellent condition as can be seen in the pictures. There are only limited signs of wear although there are a few marks to the interior. 

Altogether a nice cap that would make a good addition to a collection or could suit a reenactor.
