    Default Just got this visor cap from the local opp shop dated 1950

    Hi all just got this visor cap from the local opp shop for $5 Au can't believe my luck ATM. I think it's an officers cap but as most of you know I'm still a green horn although I have learnt quiet alot since being a regular to the forum . I'm unsure about it . Patrol blue's I'm guessing and australian by the chin strap buttons . although the cap is made in england . any help be great on this one cheers

    Bargain for 5 bucks mate. Unusual to see an officers cap with a WD acceptance stamp, Aussie Dept of Defence in this case.
