    Similar to my other visor cap shown, this named Scots Guards hat dates to the First World War period. It was made by the prestigious cap makers, Cater and has a silver plated badge made by Henry Tatton of Edinburgh.

    You can see how the checkered band on early caps were heavily woven as opposed to the ribbon appearance used on WWII examples. Despite the dulled goldwire peak the hat looks beautiful.

      Quite rare to find one of these to the first world war period. A truly beautiful cap you have there.

      Thanks BlackWatch. The officer was comissioned in 1917 and remained on the reserve list until 1940. Whilst not in prestine contition the cap has aged gracefully and is not too bad for 100 years old!
