Original Welch Regiment Coloured Field Service Forage Cap
An original British Army navy blue coloured field service cap with Welch Regiment cap badge as worn in the inter-war period as well as the Second World War.
This cap is made from a navy blue wool and features yellow piping to the top edge and two brass general service buttons to the front. The cap is fitted with a Welch regiment cap badge. The interior of the cap is lined and features brass safety pins used to keep the cap in a specific shape whilst worn. There is also a stencil in white which may be the original owner's name or similar.
When laid flat the opening of the cap measures 9 3/4".
The cap is in good condition for its age and it displays well with only limited signs of wear and use.
All in all a nice period cap which would make a good addition to any collection.
