Hi Guys, here we have the well known "FS" or "Field Service Cap". Worn by British troops for most of WW2. First introduced in 1937 for wear with Battledress it was designed to replaced the Service Dress cap. The design had it's origins in the Victorian era. It was replaced by the "GS" cap in 1943 but some troops wore it almost throughout the war.
It was often worn at some fantastic angles on the side of the head!
The sides could be pulled down in cold weather.
This example is a good large size and is mint, unissued.
Buttons could be of "General Service" pattern as seen here, or of Regimental pattern. Worn with the cap badge. This example of course has never had a badge on it.
Interestingly, the Germans virtually copied this cap's design for wear in black by the NSKK.
