WAAF Officer's WWII Service Dress Cap

This is one of the scarcer WWII caps to locate and they don't often turn up in this size or condition. It is to the standard issue Officer rank pattern made of barathea material and finished in RAF blue;it is in near perfect condition with little wear an no holes, staining or fading. The cloth peak carries parallel stitching following the curve of the peak and is characteristic of the design. The cap features a fine Kings Crown badge with strong colours fixed to a black mohair band. The only issue with this cap was when purchased the 'chinstrap' was absent so we have fitted a period patent leather example from a period donor cap that was past saving. Inside the cap carries fine diamond shaped makers label named to Moss Bross of 20-21 King Street, Covent Garden. The label also carries the Moss Bross crest and the date 1881. This was the year the Moses Brothers moved to their King Street premises. Moss Bross were quality suppliers to the British Military in both World Wars and remain a strong name on the High Street today. The cotton lining has very minor staining to the crown but again is in exceptional condition. No size is marked by the cap is a good fit on a head circumference of 22.5" or c. 56 cm. The cap is not named so we sadly have no idea of it's history.
