This is what I consider to be an economy example of an other ranks SAAF FS cap. Interestingly the badge has the SAAF blue felt backing added, not regulation. The side buttons are for the General List. This is the first cap I have seen where the skirt is sewn together at the join rather than "buttoned". The material is quite rough and definitely not tailor made leading me to consider it an economy cap, although O/R FS caps are always a lesser quality than officers. I have seen a Canadian FS cap from 1900 used in the Boer War exhibiting the same frontal feature belonging to Sgt. John Baker, 36h Peel Regiment (http://angloboerwarmuseum.com/Boer70u_hero23_mckerihen2_cap.html). Any opinions?
Arrived today, 1937 to 1953 period OR's coloured field service cap, a well used but still good condition example, blue with golden yellow crown piping. The buttons are worn from polishing and the inside is stained with hair cream. I already had a universal pattern for the Welch, but not the coloured version which goes nicely with those I have for the RWF and the SWB, as well as those I have for some other non Welsh units.
