    Cool cap to have. The letter above the arrow mark is the date. I can't quite see if it is an O or a Q, O=1942 and Q=1940.

    The W in front of the arrow is part of WD for war department, the numbers below are a makers or inspectors code.

    1940 then, a nice early issue example. Do you know which area he served in, as the HG wore the cap badge of their local county regiment.

    Glad you could find out, I assume that is the 10th HG Bn? They would have worn the standard Sherwood cap badge as far as I am aware which should be easy to get if you don't have the original badge and want to replace it.
