Good morning gents,
I picked this up with a few other items that I bought just to get one of them (as we collectors are wont to do!). If I divide the total price paid by the number of items I could say this cost me about £5.
I don't collect this stuff so I thought I might get some useful opinion off members here who do.
This is definately British and comes from my own period of service (1975 -1999) I am sure but I just can't place it. I think it is probably one of those items that were in the inventory and was just not popular. It would have been issued for cold weather deployments (Norway etc) and not part of the standard issue of kit that everybody held from day one. You can see the Nato Stock Number (NSN) on the lable but apart from the word "Cap" the actual nomenclature is obscured by the stitching. I imagine it would be something like "Cap knitted cold weather" or "Cap comforter" etc.
I did do some time in the cold stuff and had special issue kit but I just don't recall this item. Any ideas from the floor?
