    I believe this is a 'Kings's crown' example, and likely WWII era.
    It may have had backing material on it.........

    Thank you for the replies , I was hoping it was WW2 . I had uncles in both WW2 and Korea . And wasn't sure which one it was from . I'll have to post my RCAF stuff , I held onto it because of the family connection , but its worth showing .
    Cheers Chris

    A late addition - it used to have backing and cotton
    padding, but they have fallen away :
