The Round Forage Caps of the British Army 1881-1902

Recommended Posts

An interesting new article on the Uniformology website on the round forage cap with peak, worn by officers, warrant officers and staff sergeants of the British infantry from 1880-1902.  Deials of the elaborate badges, often made of gold and silver embroidery with velvet backings have largely been lost to history.  However, using meticulous research, the editors of Uniformology have reproduced these caps and badges and are uploading them into the article.  To access t hem, go to this link http://www.uniformology.com/FORAGE-CAPS-01.html . Here are two examples of the caps.
