    Default British peaked caps ?

    Gentlemen...I have moved this query on two peaked caps here, as I do not know what these caps are, they were posted in the BW section along with a BW Luftwaffe cap, which I identified for the new member "farmgirljane" see here Bundeswehr peaked caps. post # 133..... can anyone I.D. these caps for the lady....."Hello, I am the wardrobe mistress at a local theatre group and we are cleaning out our costume wardrobe. And I came across these three hats. The blue hat is in the best condition, the one with the blue band is un-altered but in mediocre condition as can be seen by the pic. The hat with the red band is actually the same as the blue banded hat but has been altered, the original blue band is underneath. I also have the peak of a third hat the same as the last two hats mentioned, with the leaf badges on it. My question is we are clearing out costumes and I am wondering if these are worth anything or are we best keeping them as costumes."
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Any maker marks, normally English caps have something inside, all the ones we had in our operatic society were original and marked by London makers

    The badges are British bandsman's. No idea on the caps, not military to the best of my knowledge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    these look like brass bandsman's caps, sometimes made by military hatters to similar patterns but these are not military. Best kept as costumes I would think. Some people collect these though as they are a part of our social history. They have some value.
