    Default RWAFF Slouch hat (1942)

    Hi fella's, I just grabbed this old "moth attacked" 1942 dated slouchie for the Royal West African Frontier Force. Apart from service in Italian Somaliland and Abyssinia, they also served in Burma. For me it shows tons of character and is nicely dated and complete, just a shame the moth in question "dinned out" straight across the focal point of the regiments badge! Leon.

    I reckon that's not too bad Leon, my slouchies have been munched a lot worse than that one mate. We must have a particularly aggressive strain of moth in W.A.! That's a nice find mate, great stuff!

    Thanks fella's, with the warmer summers we are having over here in the UK recently, I can see these slouchies making a big comeback! Leon.
