Original WW2 British Army Field Service Cap with Royal Engineers Badge
An original WW2 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 markings to the interior of the cap are worn making them hard to read. The size appears to be 6 7/8 and when laid flat the cap measures at 10 1/2" along the opening when laid flat which ties in with the size stamp.
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 the plastic Royal Engineers badge hides this.
Altogether a nice cap that would make a good addition to a collection or could suit a reenactor.
