RAF Group Captain rank service dress cap
By T.W. Castle Ltd, Military & Civil Tailors, Cork Street, W (London). No size label but appears to be approximately 54.5cm diameter which equates to 63/4. Differs from the standard officer rank peaked cap in having a patent leather peak with a single row of gold bullion embroidered leaves. The cap is lightly soiled but retains good colour and the barathea is generally in very good moth free condition. Both the badge and mohair band are very good as is the peak and leather underpeak. The leather band is complete but has surface cracking and wear. Dark blue-grey satin lining. The inner leather band shows wear but is also good. Manufacturer's label to crown. A very nice example of an increasingly scarce cap. Stock code U23108.
