As a new member to the forum I wanted to introduce myself and thank you for your informative and interesting forum.
With the centennial fast approaching this past year or I have tried to assemble good representative examples of WWI uniforms focusing on early war caps. So far I have a named Border Regiment 1905 pattern OSD cap and an officers Gor Blimey trench cap.
At this juncture I am looking for an example of the 1915 pattern OR Winter "Gor Blimey" Trench Cap. Such caps are getting harder and harder to come by and the prices are continually on the rise for the few available. As a result I want to be well informed and know what to look for. Can someone tell or show me the basic characteristics to look for in an authentic Gor Blimey trench cap?
