    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi Paul, in this case I cannot give any opinions on originality, as I have never handled a real one.

    But it is a Commanders field cap. These were a popular item of headgear being more subdued than the usual coloured piped Furashka.

    I like the look of it even if it turns out to be fake and it would be great for wear at our LH events.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Paul, if it turns out to be not original and you wanted to sell it, I would be happy to buy it
