    Default British Corps of Military Accountants field service cap?

    I've been told that this is probably a cap for the 1919-1925 accountants corps. I aquired the cap as part of a pay corps uniform grouping as assumed it was pay corps, but as it turns out, the cap is the wrong colours for pay corps. I can find plenty of very expensive badges for sale for this cap but no pics of an actual cap. Can anyone verify its accountants corps please?

    Thanks in advance.

    There seems to be a bug in the Alies cloth headgear forum. When I try and look at it it takes me straight to the German cloth headgear forum. I was unable to post this topic in the correct forum so placed it in the German one. I'm glad someone moved it!

    Thanks for reporting the glitch.

    I cannot help on the cap sorry. Really outside of my collecting experience.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks anyway Ade. Its rare you are stumped. The person who identified the cap as accountants corps used to serve in the pay corps and remembers an accountants corps mess kit in the corps museum with an identical cap. Apparently The corps only existed form 1919 to 1925 and was composed of officer/accountants. There were few members and when dispanded all men were transfered to the pay corps. A rare cap!
