Its very faded and moth eaten the blue piping is greyish now. Has silk interior and leather band. A small tag that has F - 4746 is in it.

    Any Garrison cap patches with a parachute machine embroidered on felt with a lt blue background ,which I believe this is, would be regarded as WWII era.

    These would of been issued before the Airborne and Glider Infantry Cap Insignia merged-some say due to the in house fighting between Airborne and Glider Borne troops.

    There are literally hundreds of different variations and branch colours.

    The F - 4746 is the laundry marking F is last letter of the name and 4746 is part of serial number.

    I know you can find the name of the individual but do not know where you have to look.
