Recommended Posts

Hi

i was just wondering if this is a Great War Period cap

no markings or indications as to manafacturer other than the number

 

127955 SUS and 18 inside the black oil cloth

 

the RDF  badge is original but is not associated with the cap as I added it later

 

if measurements are required it is no problem

 

regards

 

ken

Definitely not. The brim/bill and chin strap are both too wide,

 

I'd say  1930's to Post WW2 use. Good for reenacting.

 

(I think the number is 81 rather than 18)

British Army Service no 3127955 was in the batch allocated to the Royal Scots Fusiliers in 1920.

With respect Tom, unless it's period or a bloody good repro, it's knack-all good for reenacting. As you yourself rightly said, it's visibly not Great War. There's a significant difference between living history and dressing up!
