Code: 10216


1930s example of the other ranks army service dress peaked cap, sometimes referred to erroneaously by collectors as the "1922 pattern" cap. The correct term being Service Dress Caps New Pattern

This pattern of cap was essentially an updated version of the 1905 pattern stiff used during the Great War. The main difference being the size of the peak which became larger and more bill-like.

This cap most likely dates to the 1930s, with a tan leather sweatband and light khaki cotton lining. There are no marks or stamps to be found inside the cap, and no cap badge present, though a hole where a slider-type badge has been fitted.

The condition is well used, and the cap has suffered from moth damage to the top and sides of the band as pictured. The lining has some marks and soiling from use. The leather chin strap and buttons are intact, though there is some slight surface cracking to the leather.

Overall, the damage is not too noticeable and this still remains a nice example and perfect for an inter-war or early WW2 collection.

The cap is approximately a size 7.
