    Default Canadian Women's Army Corps cap.

    Hiya, here is a cap from my collection.

    The Canadian Womens Army Corps wore a uniform of unique design. It borrowed some influences from it's sister women's services of the British ATS and US WAC.

    The cap is dated 1943 and is made by "DMC Cap Manufacturing Co. Ltd" of Winnipeg.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Hiya, thanks for the comments.

    This cap was a nice gift from a friend who was living in Canada.

    I also have some CWAC insignia in my collection which all belonged to one lady.

    I do have this CWAC handbag too:
