    If you Google for the book "Memoirs of an AWAS Driver" the front cover has a photo with the lady wearing a totally different style of hat. More like the ATS pattern except it appears to have a leather edged peak.
    Does anyone know anything about this cap?

    G'day fellas, I was lucky enough to pick up this little beauty on the weekend, a nice original WW11 Aussie Slouch hat, it will go very nicely with my Aussie mannequin. All I need is an original 2/4th Infantry Battalion colour patch and I'll be happy!

    Give us a look at the liner band, maybe it hasn't one? Hey she's a beauty.
