Original WW2 RAF Officers Peaked Cap by 'Burberry'
A nice original Royal Air Force Officers Peaked Cap made by 'Burberrys' in the 1940s.
This pattern of cap was worn by RAF officers in the pre-war period and well into the postwar years. As it is a private purchase item it is impossible to date exactly but based on the shape and label it is WW2 period. It features a Kings crown bullion cap badge and a black patent leather chinstrap which is held in place with black coloured cloth covered buttons.
The interior of the cap features a leather sweatband which is marked 'Real Roam Leather' as if often found on caps made during this period. The makers label is also present and features the name of 'Burberrys' along with the graphic depicting the equestrian knight which is usually found on Burberry labels.
The hat is a smaller size which will fit around a size 6 5/8.
The overall condition of the cap is very good but it does have a couple of small flaws. There is a small moth nip to the peak and some signs of wear and age. Please study the pictures before purchasing and remember that this is a vintage, pre-worn item.
A nice original example of an RAF officers hat with a classic label.
