~ WW2 British Royal Air Force Warrant Officer’s Field Service Side Cap ~
An original WW2 British Royal Air Force Warrant Officer’s field service side cap
The cap is of blue serge with an interior brown silk lining and brown velvet headband.
It has its original brass King’s crown and eagle cap badges secured on the inside with brass nuts.
It also has its two original brass buttons to the front.
The interior is stamped though its difficult to make out what it reads but it looks like ‘AID 2E0’.
There is evidence that there was a stitched label (maybe a makers label?) inside the cap but this is no longer present.
~ Dimensions ~
The cap, when laid flat measures 29cm (11 ½ inches) front to back.
It has an inner circumference of 55cm (21 ½ inches).
It weighs 150g.
~ Condition ~
There is a small hole at the back of the cap but otherwise it is in a really nice condition with very little wear.
The eagle badge is missing one of its securing nuts but is still perfectly secure.
