    Here is ATS service dress cap number 2. By the way, when I unpacked these from the trunk, they were stuffed with 1950's dated newspaper and moth balls. Hence the nice condition of all her items.

    This one is oddly missing it's officers bronze cap badge. I have not bothered to replace it.

    It has a nice little woven name tag in the crown.

    Hiya Al, she liked to shop at some expensive places!

    Hiya Paul, she never really wore anything out and did look after her kit.

    Cheers, Lez.
