Cap Canadian unissued 1952

Article about: G'day All Here's one that fell my way yesterday! I haven't ever seen one before and know nothing about! I guess these could have been issued during the Korean conflict. Interesting it has KC

    These are common in Canada and very had to sell, I use them for the chin strap if I come across a nice hat that is missing one.

    Common yes but still a must for any Canadian headgear collector I have a couple Dean and they were rather cheap to purchase but look good displayed.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    I also picked up one these at a local vintage fair last year, appears unissued too, the buttons on mine seem to be plastic.
