A recent acquisition, an officers SD named to Eaton form Aylesbury. The cap came with a very poor condition staff officers red band and metal badge, though both have obviously been resewn so they might not belong with the cap, however there were signs they had been together fro some time. The cap is in very good condition with only a few moth holes and the crown was lined with brown paper, there is no makers mark under the paper but the paper size label is of the circular form which I think is typical of WWI examples, as is the very narrow chinstrap with a riveted diamond shaped slide. It has GS buttons, kings crown and green skiver under the peak which is typical for WWI or interwars SD caps, though this feature continued in use much later on forage/dress caps. Some pix are the sellers, others are mine after the red band fell off. It also came with a set of six officers black cloth bath stars on a red backing which I think makes them for Infantry though the seller thought they were Staff officer. The seller thought the officer had served in WWI as a staff officer and then in WWII in the Home Guard.
