A recent acquisition of mine, a Khaki other ranks service dress cap badged to the Buffs. I really can't be sure of the age of the cap, the last two numbers of the date stamp are worn. I would hazard a guess that it could either be 1939 or 1959. Both chinstrap buttons are Kings Crown and look as though they have always been on the cap. The chinstrap seems to be missing a couple of inches, and there is some loss to the nap of the cloth behind the chinstrap. The cap badge is impossible to remove, and so has possibly always been on the cap. The peak shows evidence of being 'slashed' - a common practice amongst soldiers. I remember getting my a**e kicked by my BSM for doing it to my cap! I have shown the cap next to a tunic I also recently acquired.
