    Very nice indeed Jerry and that must be a real rarity. Am I right in thinking these were discontinued with the abolition of full dress in 1914?

    Probably with the introduction of service dress, c1908, though some would continue to wear them into the great war. And yes, very rare.

    Jerry,

    That is a sharp looking cap. Know nothing about these but certainly nice to look at!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Thanks map.

    A very uncommon cap to see, any British caps from thos period are rare, and officer caps of this pattern are very rare.
