    Hi Tom, that is a Medical officer visor.
    Here is a Transport visor, notice the light blue piping. There is also another darker blue used for Supply but I don't have an example to show.
    There are a lot of piping colors and depending on the year you might have 2 different colors for the same branch.

    Hi Tom, medical is correct in my opinion, which to be honest, was my first thought when I saw the cap.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade,
    Yeah Medical is okay but i just thought it was the wrong colour when i first bought it. Funny how we can mix them up until sombody points it out with photos of caps.Oh well i'm happy to just have an original with soutache and thanks again to Erichk for all his help too

    The Medical officer hats are under appreciated in my opinion. Some collectors think of them as other than combat or front line soldiers; a lot of these officers were often close to the front lines in field hospitals and often worked under horrific conditions. I consider these gentleman to be as worthy of respect as any other combat vet.
