This is a fantastic example of the pre-war officers field cap and one I have waited a long time to get hold of in this condition and with these features.
The black velvet band is still plush and shiny and no mothing is to be found on the crown. A couple of nips appear on the piping but otherwise the cap is mint.
This type of cap was authorised for wear till october 1913 and from then on only the grey field cap could be worn.
It has a leather peak with a grey sweatband and the underside of the peak has been colour matched to the sweatband. The cap is also half lined in the interior allowing the benefit of clear inspection of the construction.
It came with the internal spring still inside and thus retained its shape.
Thanks for taking the time.........
