    Thanks James

    I think the ability to fold down the sides of the fs cap is largely symbolic and I assume dates from an earlier period when such was done. I have a vague recollection of seeing a picture with the sides down, but can't remember where and it was not often done as far as I am aware.

    The slouch hat is discussed here and came with a pith helmet with a RASC flash on it
