    The buttons and strap are later incorrect additions, the strap and buttons are totally wrong anyway - throw it away. RN caps are hard to pin down date wise but the smaller volume of the top of the cap suggests a WW I- pre WWII style, but is not really conclusive.

    look through here and you'll get a good range of examples and information.

The interior stich pattern leans more towards WW II era.

    I agree with the above. Its a nice Royal Navy Petty Officers cap with incorrect buttons and chinstrap and I would put it around the WW1 period.
