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.
