Information about this cap

Recommended Posts

I have a cap I got from my grandfather many years ago but I can't find any pictures of this online. If anyone can tell me which country this cap 'belongs' to I would be greatful.

Hello! I moved your topic, believing the new location will provide experts an opportunity to comment and/or move it to the appropriate country/period section. At the very least you will know if it is or not a British Armed Forces (1914-1945) piece of headgear. 

 

Best regards,

John

First: Welcome to the Forum, Erik! Second, I've have again moved it but now to the correct section. I asked around on our Forum's FB page and it turns out it is a Hungarian WWII cap.

 

An example:

Could be however that it is "home-made" with the things attached. Waiting on more information.

Interestingly the cap itself appears to be  acirca WWII British made FS cap, but the insignia obviously is not, so probably converted from a British cap to a Hungarian version, but when this was done is another question.
