Default Shropshire Yeomanry officers forage/dress cap

Shropshire Yeomanry with bullion badge. It dates to about 1953 as it has Kings crown buttons, and the Herbert Johnson makers logo is by appointment to the Late King George VI and the Bullion badge has a Queens crown. Inside the sweatband is a rolled up piece of a newspaper dated July 1966.
