A rare example of the khaki cloth cap, with patent leather peak and chinstrap. Complete with red cotton embroidered short lived 1st pattern cap badge. The interior with oilskin lining, this with issue stamp. Some service wear, small rip to the center of the badge near the eagle. This pattern of khaki cap was first used by the RNAS for land service, it is interesting to note, that this example is fitted with a pair of brass anchor buttons, which would indicate the owner was ex RNAS. The cap was adopted by the RAF on its creation on the 1st April 1918, with the embroidered badge, which was quickly replaced by the brass cap badge.
