    About this item

    An original WW2 RAF Ordinary Airman's Forage Cap in good condition made in 1942.

    These caps came into issue with the RAF shortly before the Second World War and were worn by all airmen of the rank of Flight Sergeant and below. It is now an iconic piece of wartime RAF clothing synonymous with both Sergeant Aircrew and ground crew alike.

    This particular example features a brass Kings crown cap badge and two brass Kings crown buttons to the front as was standard at the beginning of WW2 and make it ideal for someone looking for an early example.

    The original maker's stamp is still visible to the interior and bears the name 'J. Colleet Ltd' along with the 1942 date, the War Department broad arrow marking and the size of 7. Adjacent to this is a War Department acceptance stamp which does not feature a year letter code, as is sometimes encountered on early war items.

    The condition of the cap is very good as can be seen in the photographs. It only shows minimal signs of wear, mainly to the interior and there are two small holes to one side of the cap as detailed in the pictures. 

    All in all a nice early war example of this RAF hat which would make a good addition to a Second World War RAF collection.
