Original 1939 Dated British Army Field Service Cap - Size 6 7/8
n original 1939 dated British Army Field Service Cap in good condition.
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 original stamps are still present to the interior of the cap and are bright and legible. The maker's name is present as is the size of 6 7/8. When laid flat the cap measures at 10" along the opening. The 1939 date is also present.
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. The cap appears to have been fitted with other cap badges at some stage but this is mostly concealed by the brass King's crown Royal Army Service Corps cap badge which is fitted.
Altogether a nice cap that would make a good addition to a collection or could suit a reenactor.
