A very good service used example of an early Army Officer’s M38 Field Cap.
Constructed in a field quality wool with the forward scalloped edges of the side flaps and top of the cap piped silver aluminium cord and with an originally applied machine woven eagle and wire rosette. Each side has a single vent grommet.
The Soutache sits as an inverted V above the rosette and is worthy of special mention as I believe this to be the waffenfarbe of the propaganda troops, even allowing for age fading. Such examples are rare.
Inside, the cap is lined with a black rayon size marked 56 ½, the brow trimmed with brown leather.
Overall condition is very good, the Cap free from moth or other damage
