    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for the info and I'm glad I did not call it an officers cap as the seller had it listed as one, but a senior NCO's cap is a good addition to my collection as I don't have one for that rank and I always wanted an original cap for this regiment regardless of the date.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    What is the difference between the one I posted and what an officers SD cap would look like? Did the officers have a different motto, because if it was a different regiment I would assume it was an officers version, either late war or early post war and it has the officers chinstrap or at least something very similar to the officers type. I assume as they would be a tanks regiment the officers would wear the black beret or the coloured FS cap and not the SD cap.
    Regards,

    Hi all,

    Interesting thread. Just thought Id share my thoughts, for what its worth, Officer's cap would have a different chinstrap without metalwork with gilt or staybright buttons.
