WWII RAF / RCAF Officer's cap in excellent condition .... Fabric shows no mothing, staining, nor discoloration.... Bullion King's (Tudor) Crown officer's cap badge (crown part of the one-piece cap badge is unstitched on top but it's not noticeable and t's certainly no danger of it coming off), great leather chin-strap, two ventilation holes on each underside of floppy top.... Fantastic maker's label inside with the Royal Warrant reads: By Appointment / Scott & Co. / Hatters to H.M. the King / The Royal Family / Old Bond Street / Piccadilly, W. On sweatband, the words Real Roan Leather are imprinted. Sweatband is very supple and completely stitched.... Lining appears to be satin, no holes, with a nice large"uncarmelized" plastic guard in the middle over the elaborate maker's markings... Cap has no fading, and underside of visor is pristine in matching blue.... As one can see, the cap has a bit of the "crusher" look to it, which was popular among USAAF, RAF, RCAF, RAAF, and RNZAF officers. Size marked 6 5/8 - which is the UK size - this equals 6 3/4" US and 54cm Europe.
