    Hello chaps ,caps are not my area so by all means "shoot me down" but to me it looks like an NCO's cap that has had an officers cord and buttons attached to replace the original leather one(promotion??). If it's an original cap that would not be unheard of as some people just liked using their original kit? Just a thought. Leon.
    This is possible, but it would also mean the piping would have to be replaced which would be quiet the task.

    The visor is a legit Erel Officer's white-top.
    Very rarely do you see EM/NCO metal insignia on an Officer's visor hat, but it did happen.

    You have to check the pasteboard for signs that it had bullion insignia (ie, empty thread holes).
    If that is the case, the original insignia was removed and replaced.
    If no empty holes, the metal insignia is original to the hat.
