    I was thinking more something like this, but he is wearing a sidecap of some sort, though I don't recognize the regiment.

    Hi, thanks for the replies, i can see where you're coming from with that. Why would anyone make a cap like this out of a pouffe?

    I don't know and it probably is not, but they were very popular in the 60's and were made out of vinyl (faux leather) and/or leather and it just reminded me of that sort of item.

    I never seen one made this way out of leather or vinyl and I can't believe anyone in the military would wear such a cap, though the colours look good for Royal Engineers. It maybe a fancy dress item.

    Yes, after looking at it more i agree its probably not military. Still an unusual item though. Thanks
