    About this item

    An original 1945 dated RAF Ordinary Airman's Forage Cap in good condition and in a size 6 3/8.

    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 black coloured plastic King's crown buttons to the front as were often used on later war production caps. 

    The original maker's stamp is still visible to the interior and bears the name 'S & P Harris Ltd Glasgow' below which is the 1945 date and the War Department broad arrow marking. As well as this there is a War Department acceptance stamp which is surmounted by the letter 'Z' and a size stamp which reads 6 3/8.

    The condition of the cap is good as can be seen in the photographs. It is a very fresh example which is still a deep blue colour and shows no real signs of wear or use and is potentially an unissued example. There is one small moth nip to the skirt as shown in the pictures. 

    A good wartime example of this RAF hat which would make a nice addition to a Second World War RAF collection.
