What hat is this and where used?


Recommended Posts

Its dated 1944 . My father had it and was a RAF Engineer in Singapore in the 60's . He thought it was a drivers hat from the desert but I've got no idea , don't think I've ever seen one like.

Mountain cap - issued in two variations. One issued as pictured to provide protection again wind and a second variation with a fleece lining to provide extra warmth. Your variation was used extensively around Italy 43'/44'.
