    Yep, definately not a toy!

    Believe it or not they used to wear these in the field along with tunic,breeches with long boots and a Sam Browne belt. This was during my time "facing off" with the Warsaw Pact in the early '80s. Truly modern and stylish they were!!

    I have such a uniform somewhere in my boxes, I must dig it out.

    Regards

    Cheers Mark - Very interesting!
    Yeh I would not have guessed it to be an actual field cap.
    I'll love to see that uniform mate!
    All the best
