About this item
A late WW1 British Army Soft Trench Cap as issued to non-Scottish enlisted men in the British Army.
These differed from the mid-war pattern by being made of gabardine cloth, the earlier type made of serge cloth. They were not issued post war when the army reverted to serge caps.
The thin brown leather chinstrap is secured either side by a single darkened leather capped general service button with the soft peak or visor sitting below. There is a nice Royal Engineers slider badge correctly applied.
Inside, the Cap is fully lined with a black oil cloth with a “P” for Pimlico depot stamp and what appears to be a 1918 stamp and size 7.
Overall condition is near excellent.
