An Australian version of he classic British service cap, the Australian Service Cap was issued alongside the slouch hat to Australian troops, and during WWI was worn by a large number of diggers. In fact, most of the soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division that landed at Gallipoli were wearing Service Caps, and not the slouch hat as is commonly thought. Our Australian Service Caps are genuine, original military surplus stock, made largely by Mountcastle (although there are several other manufacturers). Made from 70/30 wool/polyester blend, these caps are comfortable to wear and make a perfect addition to any militaria collection, or for dress up parties, costumes and props. Please note: as these are military surplus there may be some colour, quality and style variation to the image shown.
