    Yes, but it is named to an officer who was thrown out of the army in 1944 and these caps were only made from 43 onward so it dates to either 1943 or 1944.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hi Jerry, my interest was peaked when you mentioned the "thrown out of the Army" bit the other day. Can you expand on it?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    you did see it when I first posted it. All I have is a link to the London Gazette 6th February 1945, which does not say much.

    War Subs. Capt. R. F. Aston (123415) is dismissed
    the Service by sentence of a Gen. Court-Martial, 15th

    Sadly I could never find out anymore than the above. Maybe I'll try another google search one day.

    Sold the mess silver was my thought, though perhaps something more serious such as getting the Colonel's daughter in the family way and not doing the decent thing could be another possibility, LOL.

    He was dismissed in 1944 for "Being Drunk on active service"
