An early example of a walking out dress Cap to an officer in the Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment)
Although a little dusty with age the Cap is in overall very good condition with some loss to the stitching holding the sweatband in place whilst the smooth Melton wool body and felt hat band are completely free from moth or other damage.
The cap badge is that of this line Infantry Regiment and bears the well known moto, Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense. The chinstrap is held in place by two brass general service buttons.
Inside, the top grease guard has now discoursed making the hat maker’s details difficult to read but turning back the sweatband reveals an inspector’s stamp, the name of the owner J.D Stoten and a 1929 date.
