    Original 1945 Dated British Army RAC Pattern Black Beret by 'Kangol'

    BLIGHTY MILITARIA


    A stunning original 1945 dated British Army Royal Armoured Corps pattern black beret made by 'Kangol'.

    This pattern of beret was worn by various armoured units including the RAC and the Royal Tank Regiment. The crown is made from a black coloured spun wool and a black leather sweatband is fitted around the edge. Two black paint metal eyelets are also present and feature the correct leather backing to the inside. The interior of the hat is lined with black cotton.

    The original markings are still present and clear to the interior. The size of 7 1/4 is marked as is the 1945 date. The maker's name 'Kangol Wear Ltd' is also present as is the War Department broad arrow. As well as this there is a War Department Acceptance stamp which is surmounted by the letter 'Z' which denotes 1945. There is also a paper cutters tag which would suggest that the beret has never been worn. 

    The beret is in excellent, unworn condition. There are no signs of previous use or wear and it displays extremely well. 

    A textbook example of this pattern of beret in excellent condition. It would certainly be hard to better and is a wearable, larger size.
