Which is why I asked if the hat was military as it wasn't marked about from the letter S. It looks like the sort of hat that was sold in Milletts in the 1970's. I am thinking that it is not British...

On closer examination, there appears to have once been a white label, about two and a half inches wide, sewn under the green inside band. It looks to have been...

I am not sure of the correct terminology for this kind of headwear so I will call it a camoflauged jungle hat. It came with a battledress and trousers and an Indian K.D. jacket that belonged to a...

Irish Guards German made?

I came across this anomaly whilst sorting out my Guards' buttons. If they are indeed German made then they must date to between 1946-1952.

It is similar to one version of the collar badge (Churchill 1440) but noticeably larger and with different laurels at the base.
