    Default WWII or Post-War Side Cap?

    I would appreciate any help identifying this cap, and if it is WWII period or post-war. The RAF badge indicates British but the maker's stamp inside the cap suggests Canadian. Are the badge and the cap probably unrelated? Sorry for the distorted photo. Thanks for your comments.

    Hi Rene,

    Just got back to the forum. I think that you are right, it does look like July. The number is hard to make out completely. It looks like 8405-2.....0..0954. Are you familiar with "PARKTOWN HAT"?
