Default Ceylon Volunteers FS cap c.1900-1910

a recent pick up before Christmas, came with no buttons or badge which I have replaced, I have used white metal GS buttons a sworn by Vols bn's for now and a Ceylon Mounted Rifles cap badge. The silver braid on the curtain signifies senior nco.

Jerry,

I do appreciate it, like many other items shown, I do it in silence as otherwise my envy would be more apparent.

“I do appreciate it, like many other items shown, I do it in silence as otherwise my envy would be more apparent.”

Agreed.. sometimes items are just obscure enough I am not sure what to say. However great cap.
