Polish Air Force (RAF) service dress cap

Polish Air Force (RAF) service dress cap

Code: UDFGFSD

SOLD

Rare cap as worn by Polish officers serving with the RAF during WW2.  Manufactured by Rowans of Glasgow and Birmingham.  It is marked in pencil as size 67/8 and measures approximately 55cm (high end of small).  The barathea cloth is generally clean and retains good colour but the peak is lightly soiled/faded and has some wrinkling/bubbling to the leather underside.  There is one tiny moth hole at the rear of the peak and very minor moth trailing but nothing of concern.  It is fitted with a narrow leather chinstrap (surface cracking), cloth covered buttons, mohair band and a fabulous bullion wire Polish badge.  The inner leather band is a little dry and soiled, the light tan coloured satin crown is excellent.  A very good cap.  Stock code UDFGFSD.

NB. There are some circular light aberrations on some of the images that are not on the actual cap.
