    I served in the Life Guards regiment and many "slashed their peak" of their forage caps to hang vertically against their nose. Most guards regiments did this. Although it wasnt regulation it was overlooked

    good call wwwmilitaria: at this earlier stage in the war and especially at his particular rank, he surely wouldnt have any problem with shortages. This was an interesting topic as i have noticed slight "modifications" done to various uniforms in many photos as well and have always wondered why. To find out that it was just to "stick it to the MAN" or to be different is very entertaining. Thanks for this thread
