  1. 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?
  2. Here is an example of a wartime SAAF Officer's blackened bronze cap badge. Note the crown detailing.
  3. This cap is typical of those used by the SAAF during WW2. Unlike the RAF the badge was used by all ranks. It is essentially an army service dress cap with SAAF cap badge and side buttons.
