    Hi all. Found 4 of these Canadian Other Rank's Winter Caps in a surplus store the other day but can't seem to find much about them on the net apart from what they are. Does anyone know the rough value/scarcity of these as I have never seen them before. All 4 are wartime dated. Cheers.

    Nice find!

    These are not rare, but I cannot find one for sale online at the moment to give you a rough idea on current values. If you paid under 35/40 each I think you did well.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Good score for that price and it is good to see that bargains can still be had.

    Here is a pic of my Grandfather wearing his in 1942 just before going overseas. As far as I know, these were not worn overseas.
