    Default 33rd Indian Slouch hat

    Hi, im looking at this hat. Regarding the hat, i have no concerns about it.
    It does not have a sweatband nor a chinstrap and also seems to have had another patch on the press stud side.
    I do have some questions about the patch. It seems to be in the hat for quite some time but it looks poorly made.
    I would love to ear some opinions about it.
    Thanks
    Cheers
    Nuno

    Nice slouchie mate, I was one of the underbidders, good score.

    The patch is probably locally made and will not have the quality of British made examples.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hmmm, sorry I did not bid more on it, but I was busy at the time and not paying enough attention to it ending.

    Sorry to join this thread so late but that's a nice looking hat.
    Did Slouch hats have colour strips above the band, as I have seen some with green and others with red and blue, and what would they have meant?

    It is more common to see coloured folds on the pug bands on sun helmets, but you do see it on slouchies sometimes as well. Different colours or combinations denote different units, ie blue for RAF, red for royal fusiliers etc. I don't know if a complete and accurate list is known.
