    Default Various Caps, Help evaluating

    A local surplus store has these caps for sale @25 euros each. Are any of them worth it? I'm assuming most are post war, though I've found some cool stuff in there before (Japanese helmet, which they currently have for sale as a "Chinese helmet") so I'm wondering if any of these are worth it. I'm not sure all of these are British/Allied, so I apologize if a non allied cap snuck it's way in there.

    The RAF cap has caught my eye the most.

    PS - Sorry for asking questions like this so often, I'm still new to this hobby and I hope you lads don't mind.

    I can only recognize 2 of them the RAF cap is modern the one below could be a modern Royal Engineers if it had its chin strap side buttons and badge then I could see it being 25 euros but not as it is you could do much better on E-Bay , with these caps look at the side buttons they will usually have the cap badge on them of the regiment the cap belongs to. And nobody minds ask as many questions as you want.

    As far as Identification goes I recognise some of them:

    1. Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (woman's cap)
    2. not sure
    3. RAF missing metal badge and chinstrap
    4. probably RAF Police
    5. RAF
    6. could be Royal Engineers as Joseph says
    7. no idea

    They are all very modern caps.

    Thanks for the help lads. I've no particular interest in British caps but I take anything "interesting" that I come across.

    I'll pass these, as they don't seem to be all that exciting.
