1st July 1916
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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Very interesting and attractive cap. If only I had that money knocking about I would be all over it.
I do hope someone here manages to get this hat for their collection. It's not often you find these caps for sale outside a dealers website.
Best regards, Patrick
Mr. Sayle F is the world's greatest SS ferret, with a keen eye for the telling details that I cannot even see with a microscope.
In the decade and more I have known him, he has built a world renowned collection often from the most obscure sources.
He has ten times my energy and twenty times my patience with the struggles to secure such material.
He wanted me to buy the cap, but I am in bustitude and already spent a great deal of money with him.
No pressure then Pat!
I am remorseless, as you know.
