Default RMA Broderick cap

Hi Guy's,

I have finally completed my new cap. Very pleased to have found a Royal Marines Artillery Brodrick to go with my RMLI cap. It didn't have the flash or badge so I had to make the flash and bought the badge at Farnham. I think it turned out well, what do you think?
I know it doesn't go with that tunic but it will do until I find the correct one.

Regards
Irv

Irv,

Excellent job!
Pedantic I know but it is Brodrick and named after William St John Fremantle Brodrick, 1st Earl of Middleton the Under Secretary of State for War 1900-1903.

What do you think about the position of the badge on my cap? Most of the original pictures show the cap badge set lower??

Regards
Irv
