WW2 Attributed Royal Navy Petty Officer's cap
WW2 Royal Navy Petty Officer's cap to Petty Officer F W J Bradshaw contained in its original tin. Also included are several items of original insignia - medal ribbons including Atlantic and Pacific Stars, printed and rank insignia and a small ID book. The interesting factor here is Bradshaw's ship which is noted as D of Y - HMS Duke of York.
Condition - The cap and badge are in excellent condition. The tin has dents and rusting to the exterior. There is a blank space where a name plate once existed.
Important note: HMS Duke of York played a significant role in the sinking of the German pocket battleship Scharnhorst. Bradshaw's service on the Duke of York is worthy of further research.
