    About this item

    An original WW2 RAF Ordinary Airman's Forage Cap in good condition and dating from the Second World War. 

    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'. There is what looks to be a spurious 1940 date as this style of J Collett stamp usually dates from around 1942. It is an original wartime cap either way. The original owner has added his name to the interior using ink which reads 'L.A.C.  Pettitt J'.

    The cap is a smaller size of around a 6 5/8 and measure 9 1/2" along the opening when laid flat.

    The condition of the cap is good as can be seen in the photographs. It only shows minimal signs of wear, mainly to the interior and there are some flaws to the exterior as shown in the pictures. It has been well worn and has that lovely used look to it. 

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