Thanks Kris.  I always try to show the buttons as they are part of the official set up, especially on officers caps as they should show the regiment as they do in this case.

Excuse my ignorance here Jerry but are Forage caps and Dress caps the same ??

 

Lovely pieces BTW.

 

Thanks ,Martin

 

 

Hi Martin, yes they are, the correct term is forage cap, but everyone else calls them dress caps, so both terms are used, sometimes I see both used and have used both terms.

Very nice Jerry. Dress caps seems to be the term for them nowadays, whence before Forage caps were used. People often mistakenly call FS caps a Forage cap.

Wish I had a few shops like that around my way!

Hi Jerry and all,

 

I have been a bit quiet recently but have kept an eye on the forum. Anyway  I just  thought I would share one of my favourite and more interesting Forage caps, (I hope you don't think I am hijacking this thread... I didn't want to start another and this one seemed the ideal title  :thumbup: )1912273_699512263403861_1075496934_n.jpg

 

It belonged to a Major General.... 10 bonus collecting points if anyone knows what it is? :thumbup:

 

Best wishes,

 

Oli

No problem with posting the cap here Oli.

 

It looks really good and to id the badge I would have to cheat and research it.  Sally Army?
