    Original WW2 W.R.N.S Ratings Cap - WRENS

    Item details

    An original Women's Royal Naval Service Ratings cap dating from the Second World War and in good condition. 

    This pattern of cap was introduced in mid-1942 and saw widespread issue throughout the rest of the war within the service. Modelled on the men's ratings hat it replaced the earlier pattern WRNS 'floppy' style hat. It differs from the men's cap as the crown is not stiffened and is in fact quilted on the inside. The hat is made from the regulation colour of serge wool and features a leather sweatband to the interior. The sweatband is marked 'Real Roam Leather' as is often found in wartime caps. There is also evidence of where the original owner has marked their name in ink. 

    The hat is approximately a size 6 7/8. 

    The cap is in good condition and it displays well. There are some signs of wear and use so please study the pictures before purchasing. 

    All in all a good original example of this rare pattern of hat. It would make a great addition to any WW2 collection!
