    hi Jerry and Hi Luc, Re your conversation about the grey piped chip. May I respectfully suggest that it may be Army Catering Corps. Their facings and cap welts are grey and, I would imagine that, their FSC piping is probably also grey????
    Cheers MR
    Excellent suggestion Michael, I will contact the RLC museum if they can confirm. Or is there anyone from around Camberly to stop by the museum?

    I know these are not army examples but I think worth a show in the side cap thread the 1st being a RAF Apprentices example which is 1939 dated these also have a green band around them , the bands represent what level / year the apprentice is in .

    Does anyone know of a UK company that makes coloured FS caps to order ? I'd like to get hold of a couple of FS caps for extinct Yeomanry regiments.
    Thanks.
