    Default RCAF Officers Cap.........

    Hi all !

    I've posted this cap on the Forum before, and thought it would be good to show it again.
    A long-time neighbour of my grandparents and mother gave me this when he and his
    wife sold their house in the 1990's. At a farewell social, for some reason the cap was
    mentioned - he didn't want to throw it out, as their own son and daughter did not

    Thanks for the comments !

    I went nextdoor to thank him, and the neighbour told me he was originally
    in the Army, but transferred with a couple of buddies to the Airforce

    shortly after, which is why the cap looks so new.........
