Default Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) Cap Tally

Early Naval Ratings wore the Royal Flying Corp Cap Tally, however, here is proof that a RNAS cap tally existed. You probably cannot read it, however, be assured, I can on the postcard in my collection.

Amazing, thanks for sharing that. Easy to get one, just look around where you find unicorn droppings!
Cheers,
Alex
