    Default Alpini Cap??

    Hello Folks -

    Alpini Cap...? At least I believe that is what it is. Picked it up at an auction last week and wondered if anyone might have some additional information. Few moth nips on the top and side, but not too bad. Sorry for the poor quality photos.

    Best regards!

    Thanks very much gents! This is an area I am not very knowledgeable in...., as you could tell.

    Mainly collect WW1 items and would love to have a WW1 example, but this will have to do for now. It seems the WW1 and 2 caps are quite close?

    Best regards!

    Forgot to add/ask..., would it be appropriate to add (forgive my ignorance of the nomenclature) the 'holder' and feather to the band? And if so, any ideas as to where one might find the holder? We have plenty of great feathers, living in the 'outback.'

    Thanks!
