Headdress that epitomises WW1 British other ranks trench life ‘The Trench cap’.
A good used trench cap in denim khaki material.
Cap cloth is with ware and showing honest field use. Oil skin interior showing matching wear to the exterior.
Maker mark to inner cap crown in white paint with good clear date 1918.
Leather GS chin band buttons. Chin strap is a slightly later period replacement. The cap badge has also had a very competent period repair. The crown has been broken off at some time, and repaired proficiently with soft solder.
A very good cap that displays well on its own or with a mannequin.
