    Hi Ronnie, it is an RAF Officers service dress cap.

    Looks like a good wartime example. In the region of 125 to 150.

    Cheers, Ade.

    'Walking out' or dress cap. I believe it is WWII era as well.
    Probably looked similar to this at one time.........

    Thanks very much guy's, the guy who sold me it also had the chaps medals, paperwork, and some personal belonging's, sadly all sold and split up,
    the only things he has left (from the same house clearence)are two ladies powder cases with the R.A.F eagle embelem on them, nice items but small damage to one of them,
    thanks again for your help,
    cheers Ronnie

    I have to disagree with Walkwolf on this, it's an officer's 'every day wear' Service Dress Cap, nothing to do with 'walking out' or 'dress'.
