RAF Officer Visor cap - Click for the bigger picture

RAF Officer Visor cap

An unusual example as it carries a woven makers label to the inner quilted crown lining indicating 'Made to Order, English Tailoring, Bernard Cailor, Alexandria'. So seems almost certain this was made in for an RAF Officer serving in Egypt in WWII. It is named on leather headband but the writing is now indistinct due to service wear and the passing years. The cap is in pretty good shape but has a few small moth nips but hardly noticeable on display. It features a good crisp Kings Crown cap badge but with a little Verdigris on the brass eagle; the leather chin strap is in perfect condition. No size is marked but measured around the inside of the hat band is 21.25" or 53.3 cm. Whilst not mint a good probably late wartime example sensibly priced.
