Default QRL Lance cap

Well got my xmass gift. It might not be as elegant as other Lance caps but still has its place in our History as the last Lance caps made to date. Also another picture next to the 17th/21st Band cap which is fibre glass. But has a better look to it I think.

I love these! Alas, I only have a 21st Lancers without a plate and I suspect it is a modern copy.

I hope you don't mind, but I was getting a sore neck.

Ok, so I took a few snaps of my lance cap. Undoubtedly a modern copy I think.

Whatever, I would like to find a plate (probably a restrike) to put on it if anyone has a spare laying about

Default 21st Lance cap

21st Lance cap is indeed a modern copy sold by a guy called googlestan based in Blackburn they buy them in normally fetch 75 - 140 when complete. Heres a picture of a very rare 21st SNCO cap

As suspected. It was given to me when a friend was moving house as he knew I had an interest in such things.
