    Default Grenadier Guards officer's service dress visor cap

    One i have been looking for for some time, a Grenadier Guards officer's khaki service dress cap.
    This one has GeoVI side buttons, and was made, as virtually all pre 1953 guards officer caps I have seen, by Edward Smith.
    Sadly, no naming or initials anywhere.
    Thanks to Karl S for the photos.

    Very nice example Bob! I have a Herbert Johnson example dating to the early 1950s which looks similar. SD caps by Edward Smith seem quite uncommon.

    I have a WWII era Irish Guards officer's dress forage cap, also made by Smith, and a Welsh Guards khaki service dress cap of thr same era made by Smith as well.

    Thanks much; I bought my first cap, for an officer of the Queen's Own Hussars, at Herbert Johnson's shop in London, in 1976. Me, a callow and
    nervous Yank ; I still have it.
