    Default cap rescue : 1919 field cap....a re-build job really

    Hi

    I picked this cap up at a show during the summer thinking it was a 1917 pattern WW1 field cap. The measurements didn't add up though and it was in fact a 1919 field cap with the peak removed. It had then been doctored for sale as ww1 .

    So the question is do you leave it of restore it ? As it stands it is niether one or the other

    Courtesy of a wise decision to keep the remains of a greatcoat pocket a few years ago I had just enough material to have a peak made. Although it had to made of two parts leaving a seam in the middle of the peak.

    and with addition of the correct insignia we have it restored to what it should be. It's the one on the right !
