Description

British militaria, in particular officer's peak caps, have been largely overshadowed by the interest surrounding Third Reich military collectibles. To the untrained eye one British cap may appear much like another, however this area of collecting is highly specific and can be quite complex. This encyclopaedic introduction to British officer's peak caps clarifies important details such as branch and rank distinction, and identification to a particular period. The author also explores the caps' history, giving key introduction and alteration dates, as well as a long list of known outfitters. With over 250 photographs, illustrations and original period imagery, you will observe the sometimes subtle differences, characteristics and changes in the caps' development. This essential guide also explores the interconnected and relevant subject of Commonwealth and post-war caps, while also giving useful information on care and display.
